Angel Vine 2009 The Hellion Red (Columbia Valley (WA))

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $22
An outstanding Hellion, 44% Primitivo, 31% Petite Sirah and 25% Zinfandel. It’s a complete wine, with a full array of superbly rich berry fruits, a hint of chocolate and fine-grained tannins. Delicious right out of the bottle, but it could be cellared for at least another five years.  — P.G.  (2/1/2012)

Angel Vine 2010 Stonetree Vineyard Zinfandel (Columbia Valley (WA))

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $20
It’s a shame that just 100 cases of this wine were made, as this bright, fresh, exciting Zinfandel belongs with the best of California, not just Washington. The fresh-picked strawberry and raspberry flavors are concentrated and vibrating with juicy acidity. They lead into a sappy, lengthy midpalate, with an underpinning of rock.  — P.G.  (2/1/2013)

Angel Vine 2011 Alder Ridge Vineyard Zinfandel (Columbia Valley (WA))

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $20
As the vines grow older, the Alder Ridge Zins gain complexity and gravitas with each new vintage. Tart and brambly, this is a berry-fest, with racy flavors of cranberry, strawberry, raspberry and hints of baking spice. The acidity and overall balance suggest that this can prosper through 2020.  — P.G.  (5/1/2014)

Angel Vine 2011 Avery Vineyard Zinfandel (Columbia Valley (WA))

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $20
Among the four vineyards used by Angel Vine, the Avery stands apart for its detail, grip and length. Blue fruits take center stage—plums and berries—along with a tasty lick of coffee and chocolate. You may pick up a hint of the tack room and a streak of fennel in the finish.  — P.G.  (5/1/2014)

Angel Vine 2011 Primitivo (Columbia Valley (WA))

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $20
Primitivo is a close relation to Zinfandel, and it slides easily into the Angel Vine lineup which includes four other Zins. This carries a touch more earthiness than the others, with darker fruits and a distinctive streak of espresso. Good grip and density mark this as the most muscular wine among the 2011’s.  — P.G.  (5/1/2014)

Angel Vine 2009 Zinfandel (Columbia Valley (WA))

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $19
Angel Vine sources excellent fruit, and makes what is arguably the most hedonistic, California-style Zinfandel in the Northwest. Here blended with 13% Primitivo, the sweet and liquorous berry fruit flavors are deep and luxurious. Buttressed with juicy natural acidity, this wine does not show its 14.8% alcohol.  — P.G.  (2/1/2012)

Angel Vine 2008 The Hellion Red (Columbia Valley (WA))

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $22
The Hellion is three-quarters Primitivo and the rest Petite Sirah, sourced from a pair of excellent Washington vineyards. An explosion of ripe berries, it coats the palate with effusive fruit, but retains a balance and structure that includes details of spice, espresso, and bitter chocolate. Really well done, and an exceptional value.  — P.G.  (2/1/2011)

Angel Vine 2011 The Morgster Pinot Noir (Eola-Amity Hills)

  1. $30
A small planting of an unusual “Upright” clone yields this fragrant, smoky, lightly earthy Pinot Noir. Chock full of briary red fruits, it’s a tart, lip-smacking wine, drinking well in its youth, but also positioned (via bracing acidity) for further years of bottle age. The young fruit gives a pretty, cherry candy note to the finish.  — P.G.  (6/1/2014)
