W.O.W. for Aug. 24 to 30: 90 Point, Old Vine Red Blend
This week we are featuring an old friend that our wine team has always considered a go to value wine. One of the best bang-for-your-buck selections in our wine department!
Marietta Old Vine Red #62
Sonoma County, California
90 Points, Wine Spectator – “A zesty red, with personality to spare, offering notes of licorice, blackberry, smoky pepper and grilled herbs. Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah and mixed Italian blacks.”
89 Points, The Wine Advocate – “One of my perennial best buys is Marietta Cellars’ non-vintage blend of Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah, Syrah and a few other varietals. The current example, the non-vintage Old Vine Red Lot 62, is a 90,000-case cuvée that represents one of the finest value-priced wines in the United States. It exhibits excellent color, beautiful ripeness, lots of black and red fruits, earth and spice, and a savory, juicy, hedonistic mouthful of medium-bodied wine. With plenty of purity as well as character, this gorgeous blend should offer enjoyment over the next 2-3 years.”
