Gypsy Canyon NV Ancient Vine Angelica Marcelina's Vineyard Mission (Sta. Rita Hills)

Editors' Choice

The multiple discoveries (the forgotten vines, the monks' secret recipe) behind Deborah Hall's project are fascinating enough, yet the golden orange wine is also utterly delicious. Old Fashioned cocktail-like aromas of maraschino cherry and orange rind mix with roasted nuts and a touch of brandy on the nose. Flavors of simmered honey, buttery whiskey and pear reduction entertain the palate, which benefits from remarkable acidity and grip, achieving utmost balance for a dessert wine. Matt Kettmann
