Angelica, 500ml

Dessert Wine
Description

Crafted from the first grape of California and produced by the first premium winery of California, this is a wine as rich in tradition as it is in flavors and aromas. Made from the Mission grape, this is an opulent dessert wine with caramelized flavors and exquisite texture. This wine honors the heritage of Buena Vista where premium wine began in 1857.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

This rich dessert wine offers aromas of dried fruits, plum and vanilla with a touch of soft baking spice.

Palate: 

Generously coating upon the palate, velvety flavors of caramel, hazelnut, and vanilla crème brûlée are followed by notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. 

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

This wine pays homage to the first grape of California with our Angelica. Harvested from the Somer Vineyard, the grapes were picked and cold soaked before being fortified with Brandy on the skins at the first sign of fermentation. The wine sat on the skins for 7-10 days before being pressed and barrel aged in solera style.
