2011 Martinelli "Giuseppe & Luisa" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1146282 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2011 Zinfandel Giuseppe & Luisa is also made from the Jackass and Jackass Hill clones. It offers notes of figs, loamy soil, roasted herbs, underbrush, sweet black currant and black cherry jam, and a full-bodied, mouth-saturating level of fruit and glycerin. It, too, should drink well for 3-4 years. Inner quote mark (12/2013)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2011 Zinfandel Giuseppe & Luisa is rich, broad and ample on the palate. Dark red cherry, plum, spice and menthol notes flesh out in a radiant, inviting Zinfandel loaded with personality. Here the flavors are bright, articulate and beautifully defined. Cranberry, orange peel and pepper notes contribute to a sense of aromatic lift and energy. In my view, the Giuseppe & Luisa is the most compelling of these 2011 Zinfandels.

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Inky purple. High-pitched, flamboyant aromas of cherry, black raspberry and potpourri. Suave and sweet in the mouth, offering firm-edged flavors of dark berries, cherry-cola and minerals. Silky tannins come on late and fold smoothly into the wine's lush fruit. Impressively fresh and vibrant zin, with excellent intensity, focus and closing persistence. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2013)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Unapologetically ripe and bold, yet impressive for its core of tannins and complex flavors. Offers notes of berry cobbler, licorice, mineral and spicy caramel. Drink now through 2021. Inner quote mark (6/2013)
