96 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "The 2020 Angeli Syrah comes from the oldest own-rooted block planted at Stolpman. Medium to deep garnet in color, it is aromatically intense and detailed, with blackcurrant, blueberry, laurel, tar and violet aromas emerging as it spends time in the glass. The palate balances concentrated, floral fruits with refreshing acidity and supple tannins, and it has a long, violet-laced finish. 505 cases were made. Drink: 2022-2030. (Dec 2022)"
95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "My favorite in the lineup, the 2020 Syrah Angeli is brilliant, with plenty of darker berry and plum fruits, notes of chocolate, leather, and subtle iron, medium to full body, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It's a classic, elegant, age-worthy Syrah to enjoy over the coming 10-15 years. This estate fashions a very classic, elegant expression of Syrah and you see that across the board here with these 2020s. Drink: 2022-2037. (Aug 2022)"
93 points/'Cellar Selection' Wine Enthusiast: "There's a tightness to the nose of this bottling, with wound-up aromas of boysenberry, charred meat, violet and pepper. Firm tannins frame toasted nori and roasted berry flavors, and that structure stays leathery into the finish. Drink now–2040. (Dec 2022)"
