Angel Vine 2010 Stone Tree Vineyard Zinfandel, Columbia Valley, $20

By on March 29, 2013

Washington wineEdward Fus came to Oregon in 1997 and planted Three Angels Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills. He named it after his wife and two daughters. But he’s way more interested in Zinfandel than Pinot Noir, so he turned to Washington for his grapes. The fruit for this came from highly regarded Stone Tree Vineyard on the warm Wahluke Slope and is farmed by Tedd Wildman and Mark Wheeler. The wine is delicious, with aromas of boysenberry, white pepper and black currant, followed by juicy flavors of red cherry, raspberry and fresh-picked plums. It is backed with rich, chocolaty tannins and bold breadth and depth.
