Angeline Reserve Merlot
This Angeline Reserve Merlot wine opens with fresh blackberry, elderberry and plum. Further making way for deep black cherry on the palate.
Balanced with the fruit are soft, supple tannins, backed by hints of chicory and clove. In addition the finish has a touch of cocoa dust.
Grown on the western edge of the Paso Robles AVA, these grapes experience a unique microclimate. The very warm days are countered by cool nights and mornings courtesy of the marine influence that penetrates through the Templeton Gap.
Temperature fluctuations are as much as 50° F in a single day. This stresses the grapes to produce concentrated, bold aromas and flavours.
Firstly the grapes are picked overnight into ½ ton bins to avoid the heat of the day, and delivered to the winery in the early morning hours. Then the grapes are de-stemmed to stainless steel fermenters.
Then pumpovers are performed three times daily with a gentle overhead sprinkler. This slowly percolates the juice through the cap to avoid over-extracting the intense tannins.
After finishing primary fermentation, the wine is allowed to sit on the skins for up to 10 days to broaden and soften the mouthfeel, before being pressed to 50% new French and American oak to age for 14 months.
Angeline is a family-owned winery founded by Courtney Benham 30 years ago.
