    Winemaker Notes

    This newest vintage of Marietta's Cellars' Zinfandel is so deep, dark, and black purple in color that it is almost opaque. Equally intense is the aroma, which is heady with camphor, black pepper and blackberry. The viscous, think-bodied mouth feel coats the palate with blackberry and raspberry flavors and just a hint of oak and black pepper. The tannins are soft, yet, noticeable, and allow the mixture of flavors to cling to the palate and produce an enjoyable long, lingering finish. A touch of Petite Syrah was added to the Zinfandel for firmness and structure. A with all Marietta Zinfandels, the 1997 may be enjoyed today for maximum in Big Zin style or allowed to gracefully mellow for up to eight years without losing its lush character.

    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.
