The 2016 Zinfandel Angeli (96% Zinfandel, 2% Syrah, and 2% Petite Sirah) comes from Alexander Valley in the northern part of California. Its plum/purple color is followed by a rockingly good bouquet of spiced plums, cedar, sandalwood, and exotic spice. Medium to full-bodied, focused, elegant and seamless, with a silky texture, it's very much in the style of the 2016 vintage. While already hard to resist, it should keep for 6-7 years. It's a great value.

 

92pts Vinous

Marietta's 2016 Zinfandel Angeli is plush, deep, dense and beautifully textured. Expressive floral and spice notes add lift and nuance to this fresh, impeccably balanced Zinfandel. The purity of the fruit here is striking.

 

Winemaker Notes

Angeli is a Zinfandel from estate vineyards in Alexander Valley. Earthy undertones give the wine its distinct, savory expression of Zinfandel, with plenty of cedar, tobacco, licorice, and herb nuances. Medium on body and restrained for a California Zinfandel, the Angeli hits all the right notes. There is plenty of depth, but more freshness than in the past.
