Marietta "Armé-Lot #1" Sonoma-Mendocino Counties Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1175457 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Another non-vintage cuvée introduced by the sons is the non-vintage Arme Lot #1. A Bordeaux blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 4% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot, it is a deep, delicious, full-bodied, 5,000-case cuvée boasting a dark ruby/purple color as well as attractive notes of cassis, dusty, loamy soil and foresty undertones. Lush and heady, it is ideal for drinking over the next decade or more. The Bilbro brothers, Jake and Scott, have taken over for father, Chris, who is still very much involved, but the newer generation has the responsibility and ownership of Limerick Lane Cellars, where they have done an amazing job within a few short years.

Vinous

Outer quote mark The NV Armé Lot 1 is a Bordeaux blend from vineyards in Mendocino and Sonoma. Savory herbs, smoke, tobacco and dark stone fruits meld together in a pretty, deeply expressive wine. One of the clear advantages of crafting non vintage blends is the ability to make wines that offer the complexity of age upon release, which pretty much sums up the Lot 1. Accordingly, readers will want to enjoy this first release of Marietta's Armé over the next few years. Brothers Jake and Scot Bilbro seem to have breathed new life into Marietta, one of Sonoma's historic wineries. This year, the Bilbros have two new wines; the NV Christo, a Syrah-based red, and the NV Armé, which features Bordeaux varieties. All four wines in this range deliver outstanding quality and value.

K&L Notes

Marietta's "Armé" is a Bordeaux Blend echo of the winery's top-selling Old Vine Lot series of non-vintage blends and, while still a fantastic value, a "step up" in quality. Based in Geyserville, California, the Bilbro family has quietly grown a small wine empire that few have heard of, but which is immensely respected by those that have.

This is a wine that needs to breathe. It is a bold, rich and very juicy non-vintaged wine, with tons of personality and character screaming up from the glass. Enjoy this California Bordeaux-inspired blend with any foods that are really rich and bloody! Enjoy!
