Winemaker Notes

Saturated garnet in color with a nose of bramble berries and briar fruit scented with star anise and vanilla. Luscious and generous on the palate with opulent red and black fruit ranging from red currant to boysenberry accented by creamy vanilla and exotic spice. Full-bodied and smooth on the palate with pleasing tannins and a finish that is harmonious yet firm. Integrated and alluring showing the briar notes of Zinfandel, the floral violet nuance of Malbec the density and peppery spice of Petite Sirah, and the earthy meatiness of Syrah.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
COMMENTARY: Zinfandel in California is so versatile and an excellent grape variety to use as a base for red wine blends. The 2016 Angels & Cowboys Proprietary Red—made from 61% Zinfandel and accented with Petite Sirah, Malbec, and Syrah—is a delicious example of the value of Zinfandel. TASTING NOTES: This wine is deep in color and rich in black fruit and anise aromas and flavors. Pair its rich palate textures with a grilled ribeye. (Tasted: July 25, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
