Angel Vine 2012 The Hellion

IMG_23512102 Angel Vine
The Hellion (Columbia Valley)

A super-structured wine full of?juicy, ripe blackberries, dark?plum, black cherries and pie spices. It teases your palate with baking chocolate,?leather, licorice, moist earth, black pepper?and vanilla, all of which?contribute?to the delight and the complexity of this wine. Its full body makes it fun?to pair with food; the primitivo and zinfandel make it a no-brainer with grilled meats, like lamb and beef, but the solid structure, balanced tannins and bright acidity allow it to pair?beautifully with rich recipes like?my crockpot barbecue brisket.

A big and beautiful?blend of primitivo (43%), petite sirah (28%) and zinfandel (29%). The grapes for this wine were sourced?from four vineyards in four different regions of the Columbia Valley in Washington State???Stonetree Vineyard (Wahluke Slop AVA), Alder Ridge Vineyard (Horse Heaven Hills AVA), Avery Vineyard (Columbia Valley AVA) and Les Collines Vineyard (Walla Walla Valley AVA).

Winemaker Ed Fus shows a passion for terrior-driven zinfandel and primitivo, which is clearly seen in this wine. The Angel Vine wines can be found in the market or at their Urban Portland winery and tasting room Urban Crush.
