2007 Martinelli "Bondi Home Ranch-Water Trough Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1049310 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Vivid red. Vibrant red and dark berry scents are complicated by white pepper, dried rose and smoky minerals. Impressively fresh strawberry and black raspberry flavors stain the palate, picking up a bitter licorice quality on the back end. Puts on weight with air and finishes with a jolt of smoky Indian spices. This is the most open-knit of the Pinots this year. Inner quote mark (6/2009)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich, fleshy, full-bodied and expansive, with a mix of savory berry, herb, tea, tobacco and earth. Well-focused and well-proportioned, ending with a long, persistent finish. Inner quote mark (6/2009)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The only Pinot Noir I tasted was the dark ruby-hued, medium to full-bodied 2007 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch, which exhibits notes of soy, lavender, sweet and sour cherries, spice box, forest floor, and pomegranate. This impressive Pinot should drink well for 5-7 years. A limited number of wines were presented to me for tasting at Martinelli. Sadly, Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer have departed as consultants to concentrate on their own vineyard. Nevertheless, Martinelli should be in good hands. Inner quote mark (2/2010)
