The 2013 vintage 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 aging ability.

Overall the 2010 vintage exudes aromas of blueberry, stone fruits and black licorice. The dense purple color is a great indication of what is to come on the mouth: a solid and complex wine which is full and velvety, and finishes with lasting toasty oak flavors. The secondary flavors of pepper, black currant and cinnamon continue to evolve once the wine is open. It's richness and intensity beg for extended aging, so cellaring a bottle or two for a few years will be rewarding.
