92 point Marietta

2010 Marietta Angeli Cuvee Alexander Valley...$29.99
The peppery, meaty, superb 2010 Angeli Cuvee is primarily a blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Carignan and cool climate Syrah. Production of this big red (15.4% natural alcohol) was 3,300 cases. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by aromas of licorice, black currants and cherries intermixed with hints of camphor and spice. This is a full-bodied, opulent, mouth-filling, savory wine with not a hard edge to be found. It should drink well for 5-7 years.
Rated 92/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
