Tasting Notes:

We all seek that great bottle of wine which awakens our senses and causes us to perk up and take extra notice – the hidden gem; the bottle modestly priced but drinks like a costly trophy. I found such an experience here. Delightful from first glance with its burgundy color and purple hues, the bright and lively aromas and flavors are an endless journey with each sip. Fresh picked cherries and berries up front, leading to Fall leaves and that Burgundian-like earthiness. The mouth feel is big with great texture. Floral notes of lavender and violets are perfect accents along with lovely bakeshop spices, cinnamon, vanilla and caramel. The finish is long and completely satisfying. I'll have another. 

~Denise Cody, Cellar Angels' Chief Operating Angel  

The winds of Sonoma lent us our name. Be it a steady breeze or a firm gust, an anabatic wind is one that blows up the hills of a vineyard during calm and sunny weather.

About the Vineyard:
Sonoma Coast is getting much acclaim for the tremendous wines being made from the AVA (American Viticultural Area). Delivering great value, the soils and climate continue to reap ideal Pinot Noir grapes for award-winning wines. The Anaba Wines Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is a blending of select lots from Roberts Road Vineyard, Dutton Ranch, Las Brisas Vineyard and Tina Marie Vineyard. The result is a perfectly balanced wine at a fraction of the price.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Pinot Noirs are well known for their food pairing flexibility, but this wine especially has so much depth and plenty of flavors to enhance any meal. Ideally, pair this wine with pork, lamb, chicken and turkey. Also meatier fish, lighter pasta dishes and vegetarian items are good matches. Cheeses such as Edam, Gouda, Gruyere, light Cheddars and Chevre are excellent pairings as well. Chocolate or nut based desserts are also good choices.
