2015 ANGELI

Estate Grown Zinfandel
Alexander Valley Single Vineyard

Marietta Cellars sits in the entrance to a small canyon off Alexander Valley.  Known as Angeli Ranch after the family who originally settled here in 1886, this property’s vineyards connect gravel swales from the Russian River to terraced knolls invisible from the valley floor.  The extremes of this site create a wine that is powerful but has surprising elegance and clarity.  This gorgeous Zinfandel is intensified by small additions of Petite Sirah and Syrah all grown here on the estate surrounding the winery.

The 2015 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.
