95 & 96 point Cali Red Blends
by Marietta Cellars 2nd Generation Estate
Two of the Best Buys in the Bottle Shop!!!

Not only does this email offer the two incredible red wine values from California, but the Marietta estate has been one of America's most quality-driven since 1978. The first wine below, 'Old Vine Red', is an incredible value popularized long before American consumers ever thought to walk into a wine shop and say 'Where are your blends?' Our dad was always a fan of Marietta Old Vine, it was first produced in 1982, and continues to be a jammin' wine at an affordable price for everyone. Whether you like Cabs, Zins, Italians, Spanish or Aussie reds, give the original 'OVR' a try! The second wine is an estate grown 'Rhône Ranger' blend of Syrah, Grenache, Petite Sirah and Viognier, named Christo, after founder Chris Bilbro's dad. Over the years, Chris always included his three sons in the family business and taught them the ropes: his oldest son, Jake, plus younger brothers Scot and Sam. Scot and Jake initially bought Marietta from their dad in 2012, and Scot is now the sole owner, making the wines and continuing to farm over 400 acres of estate vineyards. 

 Cheers! the Murray family
