Marietta Cellars OVR, Old Vine Red Lot No. 72, Non-Vintage, California

Old Vine Red is a proprietary red wine made to replicate the field blends of many of the old vineyards in Sonoma and Mendocino Counties. Predominantly comprised of Zinfandel, Old Vine Red combines pure fruit, a supple mouth feel and a rich, solid structure. First produced in 1982, this groundbreaking combination of multiple varietals and multiple vintages has blazed the path for red blends for decades. OVR Lot Number 72 features fresh Zinfandel from 2019 which is given added complexity and length by barrel Syrah and Peetite Sirah from 2018 and 2017. A touch of Grenache and Barbera add a sultry verve; bright strawberry aromas are supported by briar and slate. Juicy on the mouth with tons of long smooth intensity, this wine is vibrant and delicious. 60% aged in neutral barrels and 40% aged in stainless steel.
