Marietta Cellars “Old Vine Red” Lot 56 Geyserville

RED 4/10/12  Marietta Cellars “Old Vine Red” Lot 56 Geyserville (13.5% abv., $13.99, Du Vin Fine Wines): Dark and deep in the glass, with prominent notes of raspberry jam, sweet spice, and vanilla. A bit on the fruity side, with some oak peeking through, but that’s overcome by the overall smoothness and drinkability. The Bilbro family, owners and operators of Marietta Cellars, put out three lots per year of Old Vine Red, blending zinfandel with a cornucopia of other grapes to produce a wine that is a consistent value. Conclusion: you’ll not find too many better deals for early-in-the-week reds. Your burgers, pizza, and tacos will thank you for bringing home a new friend. National distribution.
