    Marietta's Angeli Cuvee is a full-bodied, complex blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Carignane that would be a great addition to your summer barbecues. The bold flavors of plum and blackberry jam are interlaced with earthy tones giving complexity and depth. Lovers of California Zin should give this a shot as it's affordable and delicious!

    Marietta reds always over-deliver for price and quality. The "Angeli" is no exception! Big, bold and beautiful is what awaits you in the glass. The Angeli Cuvee has a generous array of flavors and aromas of dark berries, tobacco, black pepper, and supple hints of oak. This is a very well balanced wine with a super long finish. Enjoy this with any of your summertime BBQ affairs.

    ​I first got to taste this little gem with Scot and the other Bilbro brothers (Jake and Sam) at the winery and instantly fell in love with it. It was Zin but it was Zin with a twist. There was the beautiful upfront dried raspberry and wild blackberry with clean crushed bramble and savory spice, but there was a subtle elegance rarely seen in a young Zin. I tasted it again when I opened it for the staff a while later and fell in love with it in a whole new way. There was so much potential to this unassuming Zinfandel, Petit Sirah & Carignan blend. Along with the wild berry notes were now aromatics of honeycomb, rose petals and fresh golden raisins along with some clean scorched earth. I was automatically transported to Bordeaux and couldn't believe how an old school field blend could be so reminiscent of such an esteemed wine region. Enjoy this beautiful little blend now for a sophisticated and beautiful blend that would pair with any Springtime fair, or squirrel one away for a few years and be pleased with the brilliant choice you made to actually age an Zin-based blend!

    The Marietta Old Vine Lot Blends have always been some of my favorite daily drinkers from California. The briary spicy nature captures the essence of the olden days when a Zinfandel field blend was a fun and financially sound way to enjoy good wine every day. Let's take that up a few notches now with the "Angeli." Still the essence of spicy brambly fruit, the wine exudes much more richness and polish than the Old Vine. Now competing with the likes of the Prisoner, Robert Biale and Carlisle but at half the price, this wine is long and persistent on the palate but shows more of the lifted and less balmy qualities of a wine this densely packed. Enjoy with the heartiest of summer dishes but probably best with some slow smoked sausage or those meats right off the grill.

    Almost never has such an unexpected blend delivered such a classic flavor profile. The components are Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Carignan, but it drinks like young Bordeaux, despite the absence of all Bordeaux varietals. This guy is big and rich, but never over-the-top, showing raisins, cassis, fig, toast, and rounded out by dried flowers and savory herbals that linger on through the finish. A great, off-the-beaten-path candidate for your cellar (5-7 more years ought to do it).
