Marietta Old Vine Lot 73 Red
OVR Lot Number 73 is bright and juicy, with strawberry and black raspberry supported by savory notes of briar and slate. The fruity and fresh Zinfandel from 2020 is given added complexity and length by barrel-aged Syrah and Petite Sirah from 2019 and 2018. A touch of Grenache and Barbera adds a more complex red fruit character and a hint of red licorice and white pepper.
Wine Advocate 95 pt "The NV OVR Lot 73 is composed mainly of Zinfandel with smaller portions of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Carignan, and Barbera. Medium ruby, 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!"
Lovely aromas of pitted red cherries, black cherries, moss, and walnut. Medium to full-bodied with gentle tannins. The nice intensity with a lovely length. Juicy, with so much herbal complexity and black fruit. Predominantly zinfandel, with syrah, petite syrah, grenache, barbera, and carignan. Drink now.
