2002 Martinelli "Bondi Home Ranch - Water Trough" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1008576 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tart acidity and a crisp, elegant personality, with more smoky, herbal notes and a decidedly cool climate style characterizes the 2002 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch Water Trough Vineyard. This wine is well-made, but a completely different expression of Pinot Noir from a cooler area. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2005)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby. Very dark aromas of wild plum, bitter chocolate and nutty oak; lightly syrupy and roasted notes, along with a faint dusty quality, detract from the wine's clarity. Then thick and strong in the mouth, with a distinct impression of extract. The wine's fruit syrup character is leavened by its sound acidity. Shows less "French funk" than some of the winery's other 2002 pinots, according to Julie Martinelli, but currently comes across as rather muted on the nose. (ST) 90+ Inner quote mark (5/2004)
