Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for Two Angels come from the renowned Shannon Ridge Vineyards, extremely volcanic, red pumice stone terroir. Hugging the mountain rims along the east edge of the 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. All the grapes for this wine came from a vineyard with a slope of 40 degrees. The fruit was all hand-picked and hand-sorted before cold soaking and a long, cool fermentation. The wine ages for ten months using 25-percent new French oak.

The 2007 Two Angels Petite Sirah is "dark as the night" and boasts savory aromas of ripe, dark berries (blackberry, boysenberry and raspberry), violets, and ripe plum, with a hint of roast game. Abundant fruit flavors in this well-structured wine are nicely integrated with toasted oak and a touch of black licorice.

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.
