Marietta Cellars Old Vine Red Lot Number Thirty-seven

Still the best $10 that you can spend on a bottle of wine!

I made an entry about lot number 34 last year. I like lot 37 too. It is quite a bit different than the previous versions that I’ve tasted.

This one has a lot of stuff that I like: beautiful dark purple color, dark fruit aroma, spicy-heat, earthy and well-balanced flavors, and a nice smooth finish which comes with a little heat of its own.

I don’t know exactly which grapes are in the blend, but most of the previous blends were Zinfandel, Carignane and Petite Sirah. This time they say there is a bit of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon in there.

This is like a Rhone blend on steroids.

One thought on “Marietta Cellars Old Vine Red Lot Number Thirty-seven

  1. Okay, so I’m going to go back on what I said before. I liked lot number 34 a LOT better than lot 37. I still have some of the lot 37, but I’m going to be happy when it is gone. I’ve decided that it is a little too rough around the edges, sort of like they tried to hard to make a wine with mass market appeal. It is also just a bit too ripe. If anyone from Marietta is reading, can you go back to the Lot 26 style? I have fond memories…
