TN: 2004 Martinelli Pinot Noir Three Sisters Vineyard Sea Ridge Meadow

  • 2004 Martinelli Pinot Noir Three Sisters Vineyard Sea Ridge Meadow - USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast (4/21/2012)
    Beautifully aged pinot noir reminiscent of a premier cru Pommard. Lovely balanced palate of cherry and black currant with faded roses … not spicy … the tannins have integrated beautifully… Had this wine next to a 2006 Le Cadeau Pinot from Oregon and a 2008 Walter Hansel North Slope … The Martinelli was by far my favorite and I drank it with a duck confit hash with poached eggs at lunch…
    I have enjoyed other Martinelli Pinot Noir from Seven Mules Vineyard and Lolita Ranch … the Three Sisters vineyard is my favorite so far… wonderful expression of terroir … very nice acidity for a Calif pinot noir… These wines are mant to age easily for 10 to 15 years … Bravo! (93 pts.)
