This is one of those iconic wines that should be selling for more than its $29 MSRP, and a waaaaay lot more than many retailers’ asking prices. Look at these two big-time reviews. From Natalie MacLean: “Angeline 2018 Pinot Noir is a lovely, elegant, cherry, berry Pinot Noir from Green Valley, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County wine region. Fresh with spiced cherry, dried strawberry, plum, soft citrus and smoky, toasty oak flavours on the palate. Green Valley benefits from the cooling maritime fog as it rolls inland over the vines in the morning before burning off with the afternoon sun. Green Valley is the foggiest and coolest region of Sonoma and the soils have significant deposits of Goldridge soil, which is ideal for Pinot Noir. Food pairings: grilled lamb sirloin with cocoa rub, barbecued duck sausages, grilled pork tenderloin with cauliflower purée and cherry compote, veal chops.” She gave the wine 92 points. And James Suckling agreed: “A perfumed, floral nose of cherries, strawberries, cranberries, roses, chocolate orange and coconut. Medium body with fine tannins and lively acidity. Flavorful, crunchy finish.” He awarded 91 points. And now for the truly amazing part: This wine is available for as little as $12/bottle. Just Google 2020 Angeline Pinot Noir.
