2016 Martella Vineyard Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
This wine presents a wealth of rich black fruit and endless layers of blue velvet tones. Sweet cedar and a mélange of fresh and dried flowers add elements of intrigue and depth. The mouthfeel is firm, with a solid backbone of supple tannins and textural weight. Well integrated acidity, coupled with the decadent fruit profile and savory essence, create a lasting impression upon the senses.
Vineyard Notes
Martaella Vineyard is located in the heart of Russian River Valley in an area known as Laguna de Santa Rosa. The 58-acre property was initially planted in 2005 before being expanded in 2008 and currently has 42 acres of Pinot Noir in addition to array of Chardonnay plantings. The climate in this beautiful neighborhood of the Russian River Valley is heavily influenced by the intrusion of fog from the Pacific Ocean, which cools the region down by as much as 40 degrees. The vineyard was planted with a very high vine density, similar to the way vines are planted in Burgundy, France. High density planting yields smaller berries, smaller clusters and better overall concentration and balance. The vineyard is host to nine different Pinot Noir clones and heirloom selections, providing an exceptional opportunity for vineyard diversity.
