Tasting - "Marietta Old Vine Red Lot Number 56"
Variety: Red Blend
Winery Review: Lot 56 continues the tradition of consistently great wine. The aromas of the Zinfandel based blend are bright and rich with red and dark berry fruits followed by hints of earth and spice. The mouth feel is lush and full. The finish is marked with ample acidity to bring the wine to a balanced finish.
My Review: The color of this wine was a deep ruby red with almost a brown tint to it. The nose was very rich and earthy. It had great berry flavors like dark red cherries. It also had a little bit of the oak monster but overall it was a solid wine.
