Pyramid Valley Vineyards Angel Flower Pinot Noir

Angel Flower presents a lovely, ethereal elegance, while maintaining a brightness of fruit not always evident in Pyramid Valley’s idiosyncratic, naturally grown and made style. These are wines that push the boundaries, cloudy and browning in appearance, with an appeal for those seeing anything but the status quo. This is a particularly fragrant wine of rose hip, exotic spice and pipesmoke set against a backdrop of forest floor. It’s complex, savoury and intricately textured with fine, mineral tannins, finishing confidently, with even line and great persistence. $135 at East End Cellars and Prince Wine Store.
