2015 Martinelli "Giuseppe & Luisa" Russian River Valley Zinfandel (1.5L)

SKU #1323845 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A rich, boisterous wine, the 2015 Zinfandel Giuseppe & Luisa is explosive in the glass. Here, too, the flavors are bright and vibrant. Red-toned fruit and expressive floral notes abound. Voluptuous and intense, the 2015 possesses tremendous thrust in its flavors and overall feel. Even with all of its intensity, the 2015 retains considerable freshness and acidity to play off the forward fruit. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark At the higher end of the alcohol spectrum, these Martinelli Zinfandels are powerful wines for sure, but I hasten to add that they are beautifully balanced and in terms of flavor, tannin and complexity, they represent the pinnacles of ripeness in every sense. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Zinfandel Giuseppe and Luisa is scented of dried mulberries, plum preserves and blueberry pie with suggestions of hoisin sauce, sandalwood and sautéed herbs. With generous black berry preserves and spice flavors on the very full-bodied palate, it is a mouthful of rich, plush, pure hedonism. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich and zesty, this carries ripeness with acumen, offering floral, raspberry and blueberry flavors, with toasty vanilla and spice accents. Drink now through 2022. (TF) Inner quote mark (6/2017)

K&L Notes

Lee Martinelli, Sr. planted the Giuseppe and Luisa vineyard on a knoll above the winery, several miles east of the family's famed Jackass Hill vineyard. Unusually for Zinfandel, it's planted at a density of 2,000 vines per acre; typical of Zinfandel, it's often a hedonistic, fruit-forward wine.
