Community Tasting Notes 4

    August 2, 2020 - Unfortunately, our tasting sequence of California Pinot Noir proved disappointing. The Martinelli Zio Tony Ranch followed bottles of Rochioli and Gary Farrell. We did not even finish the bottle, a tell tale sign.

    Adjectives that immediately came to mind were thick and syrupy. Dense jammy dark fruit. A shockingly high >15% alcohol level. Remember when Turley Zin's were all the rage? Her early wines would be the closest proxy for this Martinelli Pinot Noir.

    I've heard so much about the return of classical, old world wine making to the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. These three legacy Pinots and their Chardonnay counterparts run counter to that theme.

    December 24, 2019 - Such a beautiful expression of Pinot Noir. The Martinelli Pinot's always present beautiful flavor profiles on the perfect weight. Combining gorgeous red fruit and a wonderful mouthfeel. I am always impressed by the intersection of great flavor and undeniable elegance in their Pinot line-up.

    November 23, 2019 - Beautiful Pinot Noir with delicate cherry and strawberry notes on a beautiful delivery. Soft and expressive on the palate. Pure and elegant. I continue to love the Martinelli Pinot's more and more. Just perfect in structure and weight always buoyed by gorgeous fruit and an inviting flavor profile.

    May 3, 2019 - Tasted @ Martinelli - Favorite PN of the day, very floral, strawberry and cherry compote on the palate well done. 95
