About the wine

Wines like this cost $100 plus in Rioja!
  • Huge and seriously silky all at once. As big as the Cabs Macario's famous for making, with rich velvety fruit that you expect from a Tempranillo. Mmmm.
  • Macario's found his specialty niche. He knows Cab inside out and he loves working with Spanish grapes in Californian soil. This is the blend he was born to make.
  • This wine is all about balance and elegance.  It's hefty enough to stand up to flashy Napa Cabs but elegant enough to be enjoyed with casual wine drinkers. And only Angels could make it possible!

Best before
If you can wait this wine will be signing in 3-4 years. So buy a few so you can enjoy now and some to wait...

Serving advice
Open an hour or so before serving. Give a nice decant and you will be happy happy.

Food match
Bone in Ribeye Steak with chimichurri......

Meet the winemaker - Macario Montoya

  • Macario’s been a cellar rat doing all the grunt work at super premium wineries in Napa and Sonoma. But it's always Cab Cab Cab.
  • He's gotten a lot of attention for using Mediterranean grapes in California. But he keeps hearing that his wines are "too edgy for the market to handle". 
  • He's just edgy enough for the Angels, and we are stunned at what Mediterranean grapes can do in Californian soil with the guidance of an experienced winemaker.
