Tuesday July 3rd 2018
6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2017 Marietta Cellars Old Vines Rose
Geyserville, California
Dry, crisp, fresh. Perfect for warm weather, this wine holds a lovely balance between bright fruit, crisp acid, and minerality. Made from Syrah, Grenache Noir and Grenache Gris, including some of the oldest examples of these varietals in California, this lively rose has vibrant aromatics and a clean mouthfeel. 89 pts Wine Advocate
Btg $7.00 Retail $14.99

2015 Marietta Cellars Zinfandel “Roman”
Geyserville, California
The 2015 Román is a gorgeous, Zinfandel-based red. Bright, plump and exuberant, the 2015 offers striking depth as well as freshness. This is an incredibly delicious, inviting wine. Even better, it is a tremendous value. Petite Syrah and Barbera round out the blend. Succulent red berry, spice, leather and floral notes add to the wine’s silky personality. 90 Pts Vinous
BTG $8.75 Retail $21.99

2014 Marietta Cellars “Christo” Red Blend
Geyserville, California
The blend is mostly Syrah, with some Petite Sirah, Grenache and Viognier.
Full-bodied and fleshy, this wine is dark and brooding yet silky and smooth. Bold, racy and juicy, all qualities that make it hard to resist. Sage, tobacco, menthol and licorice wrap around the juicy, exuberant finish. 90 Pts Vinous
BTG $8.75 Retail $21.99

2014 Marietta Cellars “Arme” Cabernet
Geyserville, California
A bold, pungent wine, offering a decidedly old school-influenced profile of dark stone fruit, black olive, herb, tobacco and licorice. Cool and savory, but with considerable depth, the 2014 Armé is another knock-out wine from Scot Bilbro. Readers looking for a value-priced California Cabernet will flip out over this wine. This is a very serious wine for the money. 92 Pts Vinous
BTG 9.50 Retail $23.99

2015 Marietta Cellars “Game Trail” Cabernet
Geyserville, California
Game Trail is 100% Cabernet from the Bilbro family’s ranch in the Yorkville Highlands. Dark red stone fruit, rose petal, mint, floral notes and spice are beautifully delineated. Intensely aromatic and pungent, but with no green edges, offers tons of personality and character. Beams of mountain tannin add energy throughout. 93 Pts Vinous
Retail $39.99
