Food Pairings for Marietta Cellars Zinfandel Sonoma County
Little hot on the nose at first but only takes a few minutes to mellow down. Nice pepper and black fruit on the nose. Very spicy on the palate and quite jammy. I got a big dose of black licorice on the first few tastes but I didn't detect that so much after a bit. Pretty earthy on the finish but not too much. Nice tannins too. It just so happens that my wife was making popcorn and offered me some while I was trying this. This is the second Zin I've had recently that pairs beautifully with buttered popcorn. I've tried this pairing a few times now and more often than not it doesn't work. With this one it blends wonderfully, like warm apple pie and ice cream, they just seem to go together. Very nice. Recommended.
Juicy, sweet core of ripe raspberry, soft finish. The nice thing about this zin is that the fruit is fresh, not jammy. The issue I had is just the level of sweetness on the front of the palate. Hard to get past for me, but if you like zin, this is a good offering.
