Winemaker Notes

The '99 Syrah offers a nose of dense black fruit, sweet oak, and hints of vanilla. The heavy, meaty, and earthy aromas are a classic depiction of what this variety has to offer. The lush, creamy entry is immediately mouth filling with dense black fruit and plum flavor. Additionaly, with oak and vanilla bean accents and a warm lingering, slightly tannic finish, this is a wine very approachable in its younger stages but hefty enough to offer added complexity and refinement with additional bottle time.

Syrah is an interesting grape to work with. From a growing standpoint it is a pleasure, as it seems to advance from bud break to harvest with minimal problems and impressive results. From a winemaking standpoint, it offers facets of interest different from other varieties: fruit inundated with earthy tannins. It is a grape with both versatility and classic style. The '99 Syrah is highlighted by 14% Petite Syrah for additional backbone. Three thousand cases were produced.

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.

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties, covering nearly double the vineyard acreage of whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while old, gnarly Zinfandel vines survived Prohibition.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.
