Anthony Terlato, a leader in the wine industry for over 50 years, is a particular devotee of red Bordeaux blends and has been enjoying and cellaring those wines since the early 60s.
When he began producing his own wines in California, he wanted to pay tribute to some of his favorite Bordeaux wines with a special selection of varietal blends. And thus the “Peak Series” of wines of Napa Valley Bordeaux blends were born to honor some grand crus of Bordeaux.
Angels’ Peak is the first blend in the series, following the traditions and methods of the Pomerol region which is known for its fruit forward wines dominated by the Merlot grape. This wine is a rich, lush tribute to Pomerol.
