Critical Acclaim

"The top wine is the brilliant 2005 Angeli Cuvee, a Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Carignan blend crafted by proprietor/winemaker Chris Bilbro. One of the finest examples of this wine he has yet made, the 2005 boasts a dense purple color as well as plump, succulent, sumptuous blue, red, and black fruits intermixed with notions of wood spice, earth, and pepper. The wine cuts a full-bodied, fleshy, multidimensional swath across the palate, and the finish lasts over 40 seconds. Very drinkable already, it should evolve effortlessly for another 7-8+ years."
