Martinelli Bondi Home Ranch Pinot Noir California Russian River Valley 2007
Regular priceSale price
Rich, fleshy, full-bodied and expansive, with a mix of savory berry, herb, tea, tobacco and earth. Well-focused and well-proportioned, ending with a long, persistent finish.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The only Pinot Noir I tasted was the dark ruby-hued, medium to full-bodied 2007 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch, which exhibits notes of soy, lavender, sweet and sour cherries, spice box, forest floor, and pomegranate. This impressive Pinot should drink well for 5-7 years. A limited number of wines were presented to me for tasting at Martinelli. Sadly, Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer have departed as consultants to concentrate on their own vineyard. Nevertheless, Martinelli should be in good hands.
