The Angelica is a very special – and very limited – dessert wine whose history starts with the beginning of California winemaking. Angelica was traditionally made into a sweeter-styled wine by Spanish missionaries who planted Mission grapes throughout California. Our Mission grapes hail from Deaver Vineyards’ 170-year-old vines, one of the oldest Mission vineyards in the state. The grapes were lightly fermented, fortified and barrel aged for over two years.
Silky smooth from slow aging, savor gentle caramelized figs, sandalwood, baked apples and baking spices on the nose. Rich notes of almond torte, vanilla and bergamot provide gentle warmth on the palate. The Angelica makes a great gift for a special occasion or shared year-round to cap an evening with friends. Enjoy with a slight chill.
