Wine Review: 2010 Angel Vine Columbia Valley Primitivo

A seamless sophisticated experience that belies the varieties name—this wine is a great example of how a place can change the variety to a degree it might not be recognized. The Columbia Valley can do that to a lot of varieties. When Ed Fuss, the owner and winemaker at Angel Vine fusses over a wine it comes out as good as it can get and the fruit he was given to work with in 2010 was pristine due to the long hang time they were afforded. The bold berry fruit flavors are so well developed in this wine that consumption feels like it should be from a bowl using a spoon. As with all Angel Vine wines, the QPR was off the charts. Decant this puppy. 350 case production.

  1. Full bodied and juicy sound good to me right now. Going to have to look for this wine.

  2. Matthew,

    These are very small production wines just a few hundred cases for each bottling. unless you live in a state where you cannot have wine shipped to you I would order from Angel Vine @ http://www.angelvine.net
    If you need to know who distributes in your area call or email the winery. Enjoy!
