Full-bodied and dense with silky tannin as well as a lush texture, this is the quintessential bistro, brasserie, or trattoria red to drink with gusto, exuberance, and joy.
It's great to return to an excellent honest-tasting fruit-driven wine that has very good balance, an appetizing texture thanks to fine-grained tannins and light spicy elements to complement the pure cherry and berry core. It's the kind of wine that doesn't get tiring, and will be ideal to stock up on.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous: 88 Points
Marietta's NV Old Vine Red Lot 62 is one of the very best California wines readers will find for the money. Zinfandel plays the leading role in a hearty, racy red bursting at the seams with flavor. Sweet red cherries, flowers, cedar and new leather add the final notes of complexity.
