Marietta Old Vines Red 43 NV

Member Review by sleepy:

Consistently good red table wine with a Zin focus. Can't get it for $8.99 in Colorado, but its definitely worth 15 bucks.

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

Very smooth for a red and an ultimately complex flavor. Marveled at the quality and experience of this wine right to the last drop of the bottle. Has a touch of cinnamon flavor to the finish.

Marietta's bottlings are consistently high in quality, medium in body, and nicely balanced. This blend - of Zinfandel and red Rhône grapes - is no exception, showing spicy, dark, gorgeous fruit.

A Zinfandel-based wine blended with Rhône varieties. The lot number changes each year. Marietta's bottlings are consistently high in quality, medium in body, and nicely balanced.
