Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2011 Angeli Cuvee (15.2% natural alcohol) is composed of primarily Zinfandel blended with Carignane and Petite Sirah. It exhibits briery, peppery, meaty, raspberry and black cherry notes, a generous, succulent mouthfeel, and a heady, lush finish. Like its siblings, this wine delivers terrific intensity, beautiful purity, and lots of value. Drink now-2020. (Dec 2014)

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.
