Winemaker Notes

Hints of toasty vanilla oak compliment an aromatic core of ripe raspberry jam and black pepper spice. A serious wine yet eminently approachable--broad and lush on the palate with an ever so slight tannic, acidic, lingering finish. Zinfandel from Paso Robles and Mendocino play a more dominant role than past offerings lending buoyant fruit and structure respectively. This is a very classy Old Vine Red.

Marietta, Sonoma County, California
Image of winery

Marietta is a second-generation, estate-driven family winery founded on the principle that a great bottle of red wine belongs on every family table, and that winemaking at its best is a creative and instinctual act. From the winery's flagship Old Vine Red, to its estate-grown Family Series and Single Estate Series, the wines are deep, structured and bright.

As Marietta celebrates 40 years, the team continues to turn hard work, a blessed climate, special pieces of land, and belief into beautiful liquid expressions of family and place. 

Sonoma County

View all wine

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for nearly every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa, the region only produces about half the amount of wine, but what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in both quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River and Sonoma Valleys, Carneros, and Fort Ross-Seaview. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
