Angeli Cuvee is rich, voluptuous and sexy. Bright and evocative in the glass, the fruit runs from tart rhubarb all the way to ripe blackberry. A full mouth of fruit yields to stone and earth as the Zinfandel is bolstered by textural Petite Sirah. Brilliant now, this wine will surprise Zinfandel Lovers with its ageing ability.
90/100 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Marietta’s most serious wines is their 2014 Angeli Cuvée, a Zinfandel-dominated blend with Petite Sirah and Carignan. They make about 2,000 cases of this Sonoma wine. It is a delicious fruit-forward wine with loads of raspberry, black cherry and roasted Provençal herbs. It is Mediterranean in style with medium to full body and a whopper at 15.3% natural alcohol, but there is not a trace of heat. It is fruit-driven, spicy, earthy and hedonistic.
