2013 Martinelli "Bondi Home Ranch - Water Trough Vineyard" Green Valley of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1192780 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch is all about texture. Seamless and expressive in the glass, the 2013 impresses for its balance and overall sense of harmony. The 80% new oak barrels are totally integrated in this impeccable and highly expressive Pinot. Sweet floral and spice notes add the final layers of complexity. Bondi Home Ranch is the coolest Pinot site Martinelli works with and is distinguished by its very long vegetative cycle. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

93 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From the coolest vineyard (and the last to be harvested), the 2013 Bondi Home Ranch Pinot Noir is made from Dijon clones 943, 667 and the Calera selection, which is believed to have been sourced from one of the DRC vineyards. The wine exhibits a dense ruby/purple color and a round, juicy nose of black cherries, strawberries, forest floor and underbrush. (RP) 93+ Inner quote mark (3/2016)

K&L Notes

Producer notes from Antonio Galloni for Vinous: "I wish every Vinous reader could sit down for a tasting with the Martinelli family as I have had the privilege of doing for the last handful of years. Of all the estates I visit in California, Martinelli is the one of the very few properties where virtually all of the discussion focuses on vineyards, soils, clones and rootstocks...and not much else. There can be little doubt where the emphasis is here." (01/2015)
