2013 Martaella Vineyard Pinot Noir
2013 Martaella Vineyard Pinot Noir
Russian River Valley
VINEYARD: The 58-acre property was planted in 2005 and has 42 acres of Pinot Noir in addition to an extensive array of Chardonnay plantings. The vineyard was planted with a very high vine density, similar to the way vines are planted in Burgundy, France, to encourage competition and allow each vine to live in a very small footprint, with little water and fertilizer requirements per vine. High density planting yields smaller berries, smaller clusters and better overall concentration and balance.
 
TASTING NOTES: This stunning, full-bodied wine is a new favorite here at the winery. It is perfumed with aromasof ripe Bing cherries, anise, tangerine zest and pencil shavings that explode out of theglass immediately. The palate follows suit with lively, juicy and tangy flavors of Boysenberry, pomegranate, Asian plum and tantalizing savory spices. The meticulous farming practices, tight spacing and interesting clonal diversity all lend to a sensational wine with mesmerizing complexity, mysterious depth, supple tannins and precise acidity that will help it age for many years.

"The Pinot Noir Rochioli Vineyard displays a very spicy nose with notes of strawberry, plum, cherry and toasted oak. It is spicy and densely flavored on the attack, too, with a full mouth feel, densely flavors and a silky feel. Finishes fairly dry but with good length." — September 2015

"From the Laguna Ridge neighborhood of the larger appellation, this is a subtle, fuller-bodied wine that's silky and refined in dark cherry, anise and rich earth. Pomegranate and cassis play in the background, the flavors nuanced and complex, with a tangy, citrus-tinged finish." — V.B., December 2015
