Marietta Angeli Cuvee Alexander Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Appellation: Alexander Valley Winemakers: Chris & Scot Bilbro Released: April 2011 Angeli Cuvee is a proprietary blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Carignane that we’ve been making since the first vintages that we had fruit from our Alexander Valley ranch and home. The wine is named for the family who previously owned our ranch for 104 years. The 2007 vintage yielded smaller berries than what we normally see in our vineyards. This translates to firm fruit tannin and density of flavors in the resulting wine, which is just what we like with our Angeli Cuvee. The aromas are deep and rich with layers of dark berry fruits, chocolate notes, brown spices, and a nice background of toasty oak. The flavors are concentrated and lush with very ample tannin and acidity to compliment the weighty mouth feel. This wine will evolve and age gracefully for up to at least 15 years. Grape Source: Alexander Valley, Sonoma County Color: Dark Ruby Oak aging: 24 months, primarily French oak Aging potential: up to 15 years

Marietta Cellars is located just outside the little town of Geyserville in one of California’s premier wine growing regions, Sonoma County. Owner and winemaker Chris Bilbro initially founded Marietta Cellars in 1978 in a rented cow barn in the Dry Creek Valley. The wines of Marietta Cellars are a personification of Chris Bilbro, his outlook on life, and general lifestyle. No wine is complete on its own; pleasurable pursuits such as cooking, fishing, hunting, gardening, and entertaining add balance to wine, as they do to life. To this day, no wine gets bottled without Chris’s approval and no vineyard row goes more than a week without Chris riding his ATV through it. Read less
