Angelica wine dates to the Mission period in California and it”s name is thought to have been taken from the city of Los Angeles. This style of wine was produced by the Franciscan missionaries and was one of the first wines made in the state. Produced from two small vineyards, located on the Pechanga Reservation and planted with Mission grapes sometime between 1882 and 1905, these are the oldest vineyards in the Temecula Valley. As much as possible we followed traditional missionary winemaking practices in the making of this wine. After fermentation we fortified the must with brandy grape spirits and pressed to old oak barrels. The wine was aged over 2 years outside it the warm Temecula sun. The resulting wine is light brown with beautiful toffee, caramel, hazelnut and root beer notes. Enjoy this wonderful rare wine as a after dinner aperitif.
