2005 Martinelli "Bondi Home Ranch - Water Trough Vineyard" Green Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1073561 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Light red. Highly complex nose features dark cherry, lavender, musky earth and mineral aromas; this was raised in 100% new oak but I find the influence minimal. Bright cherry and dark berry flavors are concentrated and show excellent energy, with dusty tannins lending grip. Finishes with a light, crisp texture and a lingering floral pastille note.

92 points Wine Spectator

 Intense, ripe and fleshy, with rich currant, black cherry and wild berry fruit that's deep and well-centered, with hints of anise and cedar. Ends with a fruity aftertaste that's complex and focused. (JL)  (6/2007)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 From the cold Green Valley, the 2005 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch Water Trough Vineyard shows loads of tannin, a greener, cooler character, with plenty of pomegranate, sour cherry, menthol, and forest floor. It tastes more like a Loire Valley wine than the typical Pinot Noir from Sonoma. Nevertheless, it has fine ripeness, medium body, and good underlying acidity. (RP)  (12/2006)
