2016 Marietta "Old Vine Rosé" California Rosé (Previously $13)

SKU #1304802 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Made from Syrah, Grenache Noir and Grenache Gris coming from Mendocino, the 2016 Old Vine Rose was aged in neutral oak barrels for 3 months with weekly lees stirring. Pale salmon pink in color, it offers savory, bacon and raspberry preserves over a core of cherries and white pepper. Light to medium-bodied, crisp and dry with tons of berry intensity, it delivers a long peppery finish. (LPB)  (4/2017)

K&L Notes

For years the Marietta Old Vine Red has been one of the most underappreciated values coming out of California. This non-vintage, multi varietal and multi appellation blend has gone from under the radar to one of the stalwart choices of our affordable minded customers over the last few years People consistently love it for its true flavors, fresh fruit and over all balance. So we were wildly excited when Marietta told us they were going to take the same approach to their first ever rose! If you love rose and you love Old Vine Red do not miss this wine.

This vintage dated multi-appellation blend of Syrah, Grenache Noir and Grenache Gris bowled us over with its electric energy, wealth of fruit and persistent spice. Do not be fooled by this wines electric pink color, as it is bone dry and quite brisk while showing its breadth from being aged for a short 3 months in neutral oak barrels. Add a slick new package, which will be on all the new Old Vine series wines from Marietta, and this wine really delivers the goods.

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.
Sub-Region:

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.
