Marietta Scores Big!!!

Marietta helped lay the groundwork for the California Red Blend craze, which is now one of our most popular categories. They were making "Prisoner" style blends long before Orin Swift, Apothic, or Menage a Trois. They must've known they were on to something because they had the foresight to trademark the phrase "Old Vine Red"!
Check out the scores from the latest Wine Advocate!
Amazing scores and prices!

Marietta OVR Old Vine Red Lot 73....$14.99
The NV OVR Lot 73 is composed mainly of Zinfandel with smaller portions of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Carignan and Barbera. Medium ruby, it offers intense red cherry, blood orange and apricot perfume with accents of rooibos tea leaves, red licorice, saline, lilac and loads of spicy nuances. The medium-bodied palate is light on its feet with soft tannins, bursts of refreshing acidity and detailed amaro accents on the long finish. This is so easy to drink!
Rated 95/100 The Wine Advocate

2019 Marietta Christo Red Blend...$21.99
A blend of Syrah, Grenache, Petite Sirah and Viognier, the 2019 Christo has a deep ruby-purple color and alluring scents of blueberry jam and cassis with accents of loamy earth, violet, coffee beans and iron. The full-bodied palate is powerful yet silky, with seamless acidity and gobs of pure violet perfume on the long, layered finish. It's easy to drink now but offers a decade or more of cellaring potential.
Rated 96/100 The Wine Advocate
