An amalgamation of the best barrels from the vintage, Angel Hawk brings together Black Kite's three distinct blocks of Pinot into one wine, with the goal of age-worthiness. It succeeds, offering a powerhouse of dark cardamom and clove, walls of structure and complex flavors of savory leather and blueberry, brought together over 20 months in entirely new French oak. Let this beauty rest until 2019–2024 before awakening.
