Marietta - Roman Zinfandel 2021
I’ll be honest, this one’s for me… check that, this is for my wife! Her favorite red, Zinfandel just hits all the right spots for a winter warmer.
Rich and lush, with bright, juicy fruit, this frisky little wine is perfect for a “It’s been a long day” glass of wine. My beautiful bride goes to work when it’s dark… and comes home when it’s dark… and spends the interim in a windowless operating room… I can’t give her sunshine, but this comes close! 11% Petite Sirah adds backbone and tannins to the mix, giving this enough oomph to stand up to hearty fare like stew, steaks, short ribs… hmmm… short ribs… click on the picture for a killer recipe.
“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.” Vinous
Wine Advocate: 95 Points
The 2021 Román Zinfandel is juicy, alluring and easy to drink without sacrificing complexity, offering tremendous quality for its modest price. Blended with 4% Petite Sirah and 4% Barbera, the nose is bursting with kaleidoscopic yellow peaches, strawberries and raspberries plus nuances of sage, aniseed and Angostura bitters. The medium-bodied palate has a finely chalky frame, fireworks of fresh acidity and generous layers of spicy fruit that call you back for another sip.
