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.

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

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.
