93pts Antonio Galloni's Vinous

We met and fell in love with this Marietta Arme Cabernet Sauvignon yesterday. It is beautifully balanced, with lovely dark fruit and the perfect amount of earthiness and body. We liked it so much we roasted a chicken stuffed with mushrooms and garlic over shallots and feasted on that with assorted salt-and-pepper roasted vegetables. The Marietta Arme was a spectacular pairing. We're imagining it with duck sausage over a warm lentil salad or grilled rib lamb chops with garlic mashed potatoes too. We strongly recommend you try this Arme with your favorite hearty winter fare.

Antonio Galloni's Vinous:  "The 2016 Armé is another superb wine in the middle tier of the Marietta range. Fresh, savory and super-expressive, the Armé has a lot going on. Black cherry, sage, lavender, menthol and licorice give the wine striking savory nuance to play off the dark Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. More than anything else, though, the Armé is a superb value in California Cabernet. Drink 2020-2030." May 2019

Winery:  "The Estate Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our vineyards in Alexander Valley and McDowell Valley. Harvested in late September and early October and fermented for three weeks at temperatures in the 70s, these grapes yielded deep, intense wine that conveys a taut freshness with great aromatic purity. Balanced between modern California and Old World, this wine is dense with buckets of black currant and cherry that are tempered with a dusty herbaceous quality. Built to age and best with food.

The 2016 growing season was moderate and even across the North Coast, allowing for extended hang-time, ideal ripeness, deep color, and excellent balance. A near twin to 2015, with the bonus of a larger crop, 2016 was the epitome of California winegrowing."
