92 Points - 2012 Angel Camp Vineyard Anderson Valley Estate Grown Pinot Noir
Complex and tantalizing aromas of mint and cinnamon carry over to the palate, where  bright plum, red cherry and floral tones linger through the finish. The texture is very smooth since  the tannins and acidity are mild and well integrated. —J.G. abv: 13.8%

July 2013 - Angel Camp Releases First Vintage

It is with great pride and pleasure that we announce the release of our first vintage from Angel Camp Vineyards.   Angel Camp Vineyard is located in Anderson Valley approximately 100 miles north of San Francisco. We planted nine different clones of Pinot Noir grapes on twelve acres in 2006. Our 2011 harvest produced 250 cases of Pinot Noir along with small quantities of Vin Gris and Pinot Noir Blanc. Thanks to the reputation of our vineyard and winemaker Jon Keyes, (Rivers Marie and Sin Qua Non) we have already sold half of our wine. We are so thankful for all of your support on this journey!    With gratitude, Brian Zalaznick and Cindy Storman
