Marietta Cellars Zinfandel Sonoma County 2006

Member Review by jdepetrillo:

Dark color. Nose with black pepper, raspberry and tobacco. JAMMY, full bodied with nice tannins. A chewy new world zin. Exactly what I was going for. Very mood dependent. Old world fans would not be interested. 89pts

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

Wine Tasting NotesA classic example of the Marietta winemaking style. Ripe jammyness, complimented by balanced soft tannins allow for a huge, "fruit-forward" style wine. This is a wine that will compliment a wide variety of foods ranging from spicy appetizers to prime cut steak to fresh fruit and cheese desserts. Aromatically, this wine offers a lush, ripe nose full of sweet raspberriers and black pepper complimented with hints of oak and earthy tar. It subsequently saturates the palate with raspberries, blackberries, and a touch of swet oak. A nice dollop of fruity tannin and black pepper spice hold and extend the flavors through to a "lip-smacking" finish.
