Angel Camp is a family owned winery dedicated to sustainable farming practices and non-intrusive wine making techniques. Our Philo estate is planted to 12 acres of pinot noir and is farmed by Paul Ardzrooni Vineyard Management.
Due to limited production we are moving to an Allocation Format.

FALL RELEASE The 2015 Estate Grown Pinot Noir is a combination of all nine clones grown on the estate, co-fermented for 30 days in oak open top fermenters. The wine opens with aromas of dried cherries, Alpine strawberries, black tea leaf, sandalwood and nougat. Taught and expressive, this beautifully structured pinot noir carries the signature earth and loam character of Anderson Valley. With structured acidity at its core, the palate is textural and lithe, supported by layers of fresh gooseberry, strawberry, black cherry and boysenberry fruits. This is a pinot noir to be enjoyed now and for years to come. Recommended cellaring 8-12 years.
Please note: You must order a minimum quantity of 1.
