Marietta Wine Cellars Old Vine Red Lot 59 NV

Winemaker's Notes:

"Lot 59 is the latest release of Old V ine Red, our trademark blend that was first released 34 years ago in the early days of Marietta. Lot 59 carries on the tradition of consistency and quality with loads of ripe berries on the nose followed by a briery note reminiscent of blackberry leaf. The color is deep rub y , and the mouthfeel is full, rich and supple. The wine gives way to palate coating tannins that provide a textured, soft finish. " -Winery

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

A bit subtle on the nose though complex with muddy, plummy fruit,. handfuls of briary herbs and some cough syrupy cherry/berry fruit. Just a touch sweet on entry, and rather large scaled with plenty of ripe tannins, big fruit flavors and lovely suggestions of peppery spices. It’s a bit of a rough and tumble style of wine and the palate shows that vaguely cough syrup like note that I found on the nose, but at the same time it’s reasonably complex and has some energy to it. Smooth, even a touch matte on the palate, this is a fine blend that retains its vinous core with a nod towards fruitier styles of red wines. I can’t say that this is that much different than lot 13, the first Old Vine red I can recall trying, and while my palate has changed I can still see enjoying this wine. 87pts

Blackberry and dried cherry aromas spiked with notes of pepper and spice. Mouth-filling of hearty ripe plums, a hint of grilled toasty oak and just enough acidity in the finish to provide a refreshing lift that balances all of the jammy ripe fruit on the palate.
