Marietta 'Román' Estate Grown Zinfandel 2018, North Coast, California

92% Zinfandel, 4% Petite Sirah, 4% Barbera. “Named after cellarmaster Roman Cisneros, this is the fourth release of this Estate Zinfandel from our vineyards in Alexander Valley and McDowell Valley. Our Zinfandel is fermented cold to emphasize freshness and supported by a small amount of structure from Petite Sirah and a savory wildness from Barbera. With a nose of roses, bright raspberry and baking spice, backed by a rustic earthiness this wine showcases Zinfandel from a different era before the varietal began being expressed as dark, thick, and oaky.” – Winery. Aged 10 months in neutral barrels
