2012 Martinelli "Blue Slide Ridge" Fort Ross-Seaview Pinot Noir

SKU #1174181 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From the estate’s grand cru vineyard, the 2012 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge comes from a site planted in 1995 with Dijon clones 667, 777, 115, Pommard and Clone X which was sourced from Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer. It’s a big wine with 15.2% natural alcohol. Stunning aromas of forest floor, mulberries, blueberries and blackcurrants soar from the glass of this deep ruby/purple-tinged Pinot Noir. Full-bodied and voluptuous, this stunner should drink well for 10-15 years. Sadly, only 234 cases were produced. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Brilliant red. Smoky red and dark berry aromas are complicated by cola and rose pastille, with a sexy note of Asian spices gaining power as the wine opens with air. Fleshy black raspberry and boysenberry flavors are braced by a nervy mineral quality, which adds lift and cut. Finishes with lingering sweetness and excellent persistence, leaving a spicecake note behind. There's 15.2% alcohol here, and 80% new oak, but the impression I get is one of elegance. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)
