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

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.

Excellent vintage for depth of fruit flavor. Deep & dark & very opaque; layers of black fruit flavors play against a floral edge & gain complexity; not one for aging but very enjoyable for its youthfull exhuberance. 91pts.

High-lighted by bright and rich red berry fruit aromatics and flavors. The nose is full of raspberries, blackberries, black pepper, and brown spices with really high toned and immediate aromas jumping from the glass. The mouth feel is lush and viscous with ample acidity and tannin pulling through on the finish.

The aromas are bright red and black berries with pepperand spice. The mouthfeel is very lush with palate-coating blackberry flavors, spice, and slight hints of toasty oak.

The 2008 Zinfandel (no shy wine at 15.4% natural alcohol) has a dark ruby/purple color and a classic nose of briary black raspberry and black cherry fruit. Supple, fleshy, rich, and full-bodied, it is a total hedonistic delight that should be drunk over the next 4-5 years.

Pleasantly fruity, with high-toned cherry, raspberry and plummy notes that turn smooth and supple. Drink now through 2004.

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.
