Terlato Angels' Peak
When he began producing his own wine in California, Anthony Terlato wanted to pay tribute to some of his favorite Bordeaux families and their wines with a special selection of Bordeaux varietal blends. Thus, the “Peak Series” of Napa Valley Bordeaux blends was born. Angels’ Peak is the first blend in the series, following the traditions and methods of Pomerol which is known for its wines dominated by the Merlot varietal.
Tasting Notes: Aromas of black fruits, tobacco, smoke and mocha. Soft and fleshy on entry, showcasing fine depth, focus, purity and a range of flavors, with crushed rock, red berry, spice and mineral notes that turn elegant and silky on the finish.
Fermentation & Aging: Each vineyard block is vinified separately. Like the traditional method in Bordeaux, the wines are assessed in January with final blending done in March. Aged in French oak barrels, 50% new, in underground wine caves for 22 months.
