Marietta "Old Vine Red- Lot #60" Red Blend

SKU #1152264 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The non-vintage Old Vine Red Lot 60 represents 90,000 cases, and is a blend of four vintages, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. There is a lot of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah as well as some more obscure grapes in this bistro-styled, chunky, fleshy, meaty, deep ruby-colored wine. Copious notes of pepper, charcuterie, black cherries and black currants are also found in this spicy, soft, round crowd-pleaser. Drink it over the next 12 months, although this wine can probably last, although not improve, for 4-5 years. (RP)  (12/ 2013)

K&L Notes

"One of California’s finest value wineries," according to Robert Parker, who writes: "Marietta Cellars has been receiving favorable reviews in this publication for many years My fondness for the non-vintage blend of many vintages and grapes goes back to when I first reviewed the Old Vine Red Lot 14. Production has soared since then, but the consistency in quality has remained remarkably high. These are terrific offerings from this value-priced winery." (12/2013)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
