NV Marietta Cellars Christo Lot Number 3

Estate: Marietta Cellars

Region: North Coast, California, United States of America


Tasting Note:November 3, 2016

Come out of the coravin a think purple that coated the sides of the glass. Nose started with lots of red fruits like red cherries. As it opened there were a ton of floral and perfume notes such as lavender and lilacs. Very refreshing with solid acidity from beginning to end. Moderate plus tannins (7/10) with a moderate body. Lots of red berries throughout. Slightly savory near the finish with a little dark cocoa. Furry and dry moderate length finish. Insanely refreshing. This could easily age for a few years or good to go now with a short decant.

Rhone blend of 70% Syrah, 17% Petite Sirah, 10% Grenache and 3% Viognier. 12,000 cases produced.
