     Cellar Angels Update

    CLICK TO WATCH OUR INTERVIEW:
    Managing Director, Crystalyn Hoffman

    From one of the highest elevation grape-growing regions in California (can you guess?) comes our latest and greatest featured wine – Spicy Vines 2016 Cabernet Franc!
    Ageworthy and packed with a depth of rich dark fruit, spice and barrel notes, this Cab Franc is sourced from the small “patio block” situated 2,800 ft in elevation on Pine Mountain Vineyards. Grapes benefit from the cooling oceanic breezes, longer sunlight hours and cooler daytime and warmer nighttime temperatures than in the valley – an ideal combination for producing Cabernet Franc of great character as this one.
    Crystalyn Hoffman, Spicy Vines Co-Founder, Managing Director and “Mistress of Spice”, originally built the business around a local German tradition that brings friends and family together: Glühwein, a mulled wine that has been around for centuries and served hot around the holidays. A unique proposition in the market – spiced wine was the team’s foundation and inspiration for what has now expanded into their signature collection of small batch traditional wines.

    Winemaker Doug Hackett, a true artisan winemaker and seasoned vintner with over 100 medals and 90+ point ratings throughout his winemaking career, notes, “I look at myself more as a shepherd, guiding the wine along its path, not trying to dictate what I want it to be.”
    The 2016 will reward you with additional time in the cellar and can also be enjoyed now. Grab a case, experience the evolution AND enhance your experience with two "angel exclusives", courtesy of the Spicy Vines team!  Order yours here.

    spicy vines 2016 cabernet franc tasting notes:
    This rich, well balanced Cabernet Franc comes from the first yield of fruit from the small “patio block” vineyard on Pine Mountain, situated at 2,800 feet. An intense, deep red with glints of deep purple at the core, the wine shows off lush aromatics and flavors of blackberry and currant, spicy pepper notes, dark chocolate with hints of vanilla oak. Silky on the palate with a perfectly satisfying acidity, the wine lingers and lingers leading to its long, luxurious finish.
    ~Tasting notes by Carrie Schuster, Cellar Angels’ Chief Marketing Angel

    show your support: Help Save The Family Farms of the Napa Valley
    Save the Family Farms is made up of owner-occupied grape growers in Napa Valley who also produce wine using off site facilities in Napa County. Current regulations prohibit tastings and the sale of Napa Valley wine on these family farms, making it virtually impossible to legally make a living growing, tasting and selling wine. There’s a risk these small family vineyards will disappear…if nothing changes. Visit change.org to sign the petition and help create a balanced playing field.
