Marietta Arme Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
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 2017 Armé is another gorgeous wine in this range from Marietta. Inky dark blue and purplish fruit, lavender, menthol and spice all grace this sumptuous racy and inky wine with great balance. The 2017 is a super value in California Cabernet Sauvignon. Wow." Apr 2020
Winery: "The Estate Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our vineyards in Alexander Valley and McDowell Valley. 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."
