Library Wines

There are small quantities of some of our library wines that occasionally become available. For a variety of reasons, we start the library with three cases of wine. Over several years, that dwindles down until we get to the point that we want to have the final case for library and will sell off any remaining bottles. If a past vintage of wine is not on this page it is because it is sold off.

Angel

Sauvignon Blanc

The latest vintage of our 100% Sauvignon Blanc is crisp, bright and lovely. The 2021 vintage is from Red Mountain’s Klipsun vineyard. We fermented 60% of the wine in French oak, 40% in stainless tanks. After 7 weeks, the wine in oak was blended with the tank wine to finish fermenting. The result? A Sauvignon Blanc full of notes of white grapefruit, lemon lime soda and white gummi bear. The acidity is bright and zippy, but still super balanced and fresh.
