Paying For Your Wine Sins

The 2017 Two Angels Sauvignon Blanc hails from vineyards in Lake County's High Valley appellation.  The 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes grew in volcanic terror at about 2,100 feet.  The winery likens the land to the Rhône Valley's Crozes- Hermitage region, which is known for its cold, wet winters and mistral winds. 

The label art for the wine was done by Jacob DeBacker way back in 1591, and it depicts the "hilarity of inebriation and trauma of morning after."  It's about the penitence we supposedly owe for excessive joy.  Thanks for the buzzkill.  The wine's alcohol hits 13.7% abv and it sells for $17.

The Two Angeles Sauvignon Blanc has a yellow color in the glass and a nose that's lightly grassy, with citrus, stone fruit and herbs in the mix.  The palate shows lots of minerality, lemon and melon and is clean and crisp with a medium finish that highlights the fruit and minerals.
