2008 Martinelli "Martinelli Road" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1075857 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark For starters, the 2008 Chardonnay Martinelli Road offers a beautiful nose of citrus blossom, white peaches and honeysuckle with virtually no noticeable oak. Medium to full-bodied flavors dominate in this steely, unctuously textured Chardonnay. It should drink well for 4-6 years if not longer given how past vintages have evolved. The venerable Martinelli winery, one of the iconic families and longtime growers in Sonoma, has turned out another impressive group of wines. Inner quote mark (2/2011)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Greenish gold. Sexy aromas and flavors of lime, lemongrass, candied ginger and anise. Powerful and high-pitched on the palate, with an interesting blend of energy and depth. Shows lively minerality on the precise, very long finish. This three-acre vineyard is dry-farmed. Inner quote mark (6/2011)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark There's intense, fresh, vibrant fig, melon, spice and honeysuckle character in this full-bodied white, which unfolds gracefully on the finish, where the flavors turn silkier. Drink now through 2015. 325 cases made. Inner quote mark (6/2011)
