Marietta Cellars ” Román” 2016 Zinfandel

$31.00

The 2016 Román is a gorgeous, Zinfandel-based red. Bright, plump and exuberant, the 2016 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.

TASTING NOTES
The colour is deep ruby-red when young, it tends to garnet-red on ageing. It has a rather intense, characteristic nose which is flowery and fruity at the same time, with nice light overtones of wood, spices and vanilla. The flavour is full, persistent, nicely dry and velvety. The wine is already perfect to drink two years after the vintage. Its character and personality will be completed by a further period of ageing in the bottle.
