Marietta Cellars Petite Sirah California 2009

Member Review by Stallion:

Big rip fruit yet elegant and refined at the same time. This isn't the typical Petite Sirah where it's full bore right out of the gate. It's polished and reserved while still offering reasonable amounts of big fruit. The tannins are there but are very well integrated into the wine. Black and blue fruits with balanced oak provide wonderful balance and a smooth focused finish! Cheers!

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

The nose is dark and deep with black and blue berries, black cherries, dark chocolate, minerals, earth, and mild wood and cellar notes. The mouth feel is dense. There are layers of blackberries and blueberries, and then brighter tones of concentrated cherry with a little spice. The mid-palate and finish are very full, rich, and round yet the finish is so balanced with firm tannins and acidity that the wine manages to stay light on its feet.
