This wine has a pretty solid, complex nose of damp cedar and pepper, and loses it on the mouth for excess sugar and short-livedness. I would give the nose a 4 and the mouth a 2.5-3.

Hot ethanolic nose assaults the senses, behind that theres a lot of licorice. In the mouth its better, but its a pretty violent wine with some volatile acidity. I felt tannins and cherries before i gave up and felt the licorice finish.

    This is a great classic wine!! Full bodied and great nose, some might be put off by a cedar "musty" smell but I think it adds great charater. I always have this wine on the rack or in the cellar. A must have.

    The Lot 49 Marietta Old Vine Red is a pleasant Zinfandel blend; rich sassy and lasting on the palate.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Appellation: California Winemaker: Chris Bilbro “When your work speaks for itself, don’t interrupt.” -Henry J Kaiser Old Vine Red is a proprietary red wine that is round, smooth, “Zinfandel-like,” and noted for its balance, approachability, and consistency. It is primarily comprised of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Carignane as well as smaller amounts of Cabernet and Syrah. Various Italian varietals round out the blend. Our entire production of Old Vine Red has been completely allocated since 1978.
