Marianna 2015 Napa Valley Red Wine
The 2015 Marianna is a deep and brooding ruby red in the glass, with translucent purple edges. The wine is explosive from the start, with aromas of black cherries, classic cassis, and blackberries, supported by notes of creamy saddle leather, Tahitian vanilla bean, and a dusting of cocoa powder. In the mouth, the wines broad tannins create a massive structure for generous flavors of spicy black plum, juicy blackberries, and ripe Bing cherries, with layers of rich espresso and dark chocolate. This wine is serious and will offer much for those with the patience to age it, but is round and voluptuous enough to be approachable in its youth.
