Mission Briefing

Codename:

Heaven sent

De Angelis Wines is one of our most popular small-production Pinot Noir producers. With good reason, too. Their wines always please our picky palates with complexity, elegance and a drinking experience that exceeds expectations every time.

Today’s De Angelis Wines 2010 San Luis Obispo County Pinot Noir is a hearty wine with a truly elegant edge. This is a flexible Pinot Noir, one that is as equally enjoyable as a solo-sipper as it is a food friendly companion to a wide variety of pairing choices. The wine has great structure and a balanced acidity, without overdriven fruit. Think hearty and elegant with this delectable wine.

Decant this highly recommended Pinot Noir for best results. As the wine opens up, it really begins to come to life, revealing fuller fruit flavors.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Beautiful and luxurious crimson at its heart, with a long transition to a lighter ruby at the edge.

Smell:

Absolutely lovely on the nose, with deep notes of stewed plum and blackberry leading the way. These are laid overtop a foundation of berry bramble, tobacco leaf, black pepper, clove, and a subtle hint of sage.

Taste:

Lush and refined on the palate, this wine leads with fruity notes of bing cherry, braised plum, and dark boysenberry. As the wine opens, it reveals flavors of fresh forest floor, dark baking spices, and the subtle essence of a perfectly seared steak.

Finish:

After benefiting from decanting, the finish is long and lasting, with the dark fruit yielding to notes of earth and spice. At the very end, a subtle river rock minerality lingers on the tongue.

Pairing:

Not a cocktail sipper, this wine is greatly improved when paired with a hearty meal. We suggest a grilled turkey leg filet with a Provencal herb rub.
