Angela Estate winery is comprised of two stunning single vineyards, Angela Estate and Abbott Claim. Owned by Antony Beck, the vineyards are located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA of the Willamette Valley in Oregon. The land and wine production are managed by winemaker Ken Wright, who uses our estate fruit to create our signature style. We exclusively produce Oregon Pinot Noir. Our aim is to produce the best Pinot Noir the world has to offer. Angela Estate was recently named as one of the “Eight New Names to Know” in Oregon by the Wine Spectator.
From our flagship vineyard, Angela Estate planted in 2006 on ancient marine sedimentary soils with Wadenswil, Dijon 777 & 115. This gorgeous 2012 vintage made by Ken Wright exhibits all of the beautiful floral and spice elements we typically see on this site; rose petal, plum, hibiscus, root beer / cherry cola, mouth-filling juicy red raspberry and a seamless white pepper finish. The body and tannins have a medium-plus intensity exhibiting flavors of white pepper spice, plum skin, stewed cherries, cedar shavings, root beer candy, nutmeg, wet fresh mulch and dried rose hips. A divine wine and perfect generous vintage. Ideal growing conditions, long hang time and perfectly ripe fruit has created a lush, full and velvety Pinot Noir.
