Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Zinfandel from Marietta Cellars opens with an inviting cherry, blackberry, and vanilla cola bouquet with hints of violet, saddle leather, and strawberry. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, savory and fresh. The flavor profile is a black tea, black plum, and loam blend with notes of black raspberry and graphite. We also picked up some hints of chocolate and black licorice. The finish is dry, and its bold dusty tannins build-up and stick around for quite a while. The Tasting Panel would decant this Zin before pairing it with New York strip steak or with slow cooked beef brisket. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: "Showing bright and clear scarlet while poured, the wine in the glass becomes edged with a deeper hue reminiscent of plum skin. With swirling layers of ripe cherry, blood peach, and marzipan this pure Zinfandel is immediately bright, inviting, and nuanced on the nose. Hints of violet, black tea, and spice ground the wine with a dark intensity. Velvety across the palate this exuberant wine finishes dry with a textured fore-mouth focus and a core of acidity cutting a cleansing path through the richness. This Zinfandel is a seductive, stately celebration of the Angeli vineyard which surrounds the winery" - Scot Bilbro, Winemaker.
