Marietta Román Zinfandel Blend 2020
|California, Sonoma County
Bright, lively black-cherry and raspberry flavors light up this well-balanced, well-focused and charming wine. It doesn't lack for tannins and does feel full bodied, but pure fruit flavors and the zippy mouthfeel keep it light on its feet. Small amounts of Petite Sirah and Barbera were added in.
A blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Barbera, the 2020 Román Zinfandel has a medium ruby-purple color and aromatic layers of raspberry, red cherry, rhubarb, aniseed and lilac with touches of iron and orange peel. The medium-bodied palate is gently chewy, with tart, juicy fruits and a spicy finish.
