Ken Wright recently sold the vineyard to Angela Estate, but continues to make these wines for the owners. The 2013 is sleek and refined, with pristine clarity. Let it breathe and it warms into nicely rounded flavors of cherry fruit, along with highlights of orange peel and pekoe tea. Finishing notes suggest coffee grounds and dark chocolate.
