The 2008 Pinot Noir Zio Tony Ranch offers up notes of sweet plums, applebutter, spice box, herbs and wild strawberries. Like the Bondi Home Ranch, it is a youthful, unevolved 2008 that is firm and pure with abundant raspberry and black cherry fruit characteristics. This full-bodied Pinot Noir should drink nicely for a decade or more. The venerable Martinelli winery, one of the iconic families and longtime growers in Sonoma, has turned out another impressive group of wines. (93+)
Bright ruby. Sexy aromas of dark berry preserves, cola, clove, rose and anise. Round, fleshy cherry-vanilla and floral pastille flavors are enlivened by baking spices and smoky minerals. An open-knit, invitingly sweet pinot displaying minimal tannins, this finishes with very good lift and lingering licorice and spice notes.
Spicy cola, wild berry, anise and herb notes are full-bodied and concentrated, spicy and savory, gaining depth and nuance and finishing with a dash of toasty oak. Drink now through 2015. 517 cases made.
