2014 Angels and Cowboys
Sonoma, California
Blend of Zinfandel, Malbec and Cabernet
2014, a fabulous vintage that brought forth exquisite fruit from some of Sonoma County’s most prestigious growers. The grapes were allowed to hang for an extra long period of time to develop profound concentration and opulence. An impeccable integration of new and neutral French oak, purely driven to accentuate the fleshy layers of dark fruit and exotic spices , holds a bold, massive and flavorful style. The aromas are of bing cherries, red spice, chocolate and sandalwood. In the mouth it has explosive flavors, mouth-filling body and silky texture.
