Our Angela Estate 2013 was highest-rated Pinot noir in the United States when it was awarded the only gold medal at the 33rd Annual International Wine Competition in 2016.
The 2013 vintage was an interesting one for the Willamette Valley. Many vineyards had significant rain before harvest. Because of our unique placement of our vineyards on the Savannah Ridge, Angela Estate lies within the rain shadow and is harvested early. Made by legendary winemaker, Ken Wright the wine exhibits all of the beautiful floral and spice elements we typically see from this site; rose petal, hibiscus, root beer and cherry cola, mouth-filling juicy red raspberry and a seamless white pepper finish. 2013 Angela is a little more juicy than the 2012 with delightful, rose petal and umami aromas. Angela vineyard was planted in 2006 on ancient marine sedimentary soils with Wadenswil, Dijon 777 & 115.
