Brand: Lost Angel Wines are a brand of Foley Family wines, which was founded in 1996 by vintner William Foley II. Foley Family Wines encompasses vineyards in California and the Pacific Northwest and includes brands such as Sebastiani Vineyards, Chalk Hill Estate and Three Rivers Winery. Foley places an emphasis on “the average American wine lover” that enjoys well-made wines ranging in both style and price.
Philosophy: “Create bangin’ wines that seduce the palate with scandalously good flavors.”
Winemaking: Each property contracted with Foley Family Wines is committed to sustainable farming practices.
Tasting Notes: Transparent garnet in colour with aromas of black cherry, spiced oak and vanilla. Tart cranberry, pomegranate and black cherry flavours culminate in a lengthy finish of vanilla and spiced oak notes. Not the best for sipping on its own, I recommend pairing with food and decanting for at least 30 minutes, as the fruit softened up and became less aggressively tart. [I paired it with cheesy mushroom penne and seared, black pepper faux meat.]
82% Pinot Noir, 18% Syrah
