Marietta Arme Lot 3
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Marietta is a second generation, estate driven family winery, founded on the belief that winemaking at its best is a creative and instinctual act.
Farming unique and historical growing sites in Sonoma and Mendocino counties, we produce three tiers of deep, bright, expressive wines: Our Single Estate Series honors special sites, our Family Series pays tribute to our family’s four generations in winemaking, and the OVR Series is anchored by our flagship Old Vine Red, the beloved unconventional proprietary red wine that founded Marietta forty years ago.
Reaching up California's coastline and into its valleys north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Marin, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake. While Napa and Sonoma enjoy most of the glory, the rest produce no shortage of quality wines in an intriguing and diverse range of styles.
Climbing up the state's rugged coastline, the chilly Marin County, just above the City and most of Sonoma County, as well as Mendocino County on the far north end of the North Coast successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and in some spots, Riesling. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc produce some impressive wines with affordable price tags.
One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
