Winemaker's Notes

The 2005 vintage has a rich, deep, rich purple-violet color that hints at the fruit and body to follow. Aromas of ripe raspberry, cherry, plum, licorice and a slight smokiness are evidenced in the nose. On the palate, the wine has a supple, balanced mouthfeel and good grip, with flavors that mimic the aromas, plus luscious black cherry preserves. This Syrah finishes with age-worthy tannins but, at the same time, is approachable enough to enjoy now. This vintage was aged for 10 months in predominantly French barrels, then blended with 7% Grenache.

The grapes for Two Angels come exclusively from the renowned Shannon Ridge Vineyards on extremely volcanic, red pumice stone terroir. Hugging the mountain rims along the east edge of the new High Valley AVA at close to 2,200 feet (the highest vineyards in California), the area is reminiscent of the Rhone Valley's Crozes-Hermitage vineyards.

I liked the initial flagrance and the taste is smooth and pleasant. However, the after-effect of the flavors subside fairly quickly.

Learn About Two Angels

Two Angels, a line of Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Petite Sirah owned by the Kreps family, with grapes coming from the renowned Shannon Ridge vineyards in the High Valley AVA, Lake County, California.

The label art for Two Angels was created by Jacob de Backer in 1591 and the theme is the hilarity of inebreation and the trauma of the morning after. Excessive joy must be countered by equally excessive sorrow, with penitential atonement for pleasure.
