Sun River Vintners

2010 Tinta Cao Angelica

Tasting Notes:
This single vineyard vintage Angelica has an intense ruby red color in the glass. In the nose we find intense floral aromas mixed with exotic spices. On the palate we find a beautifully balanced mélange of red and black currants, dark cherry, plums and strawberries on a leather/tobacco backbone. Lay this one down for 5 years. Drink 2016- 2056.
