Of course, the Martinellis made their reputation with their extraordinary Zinfandels, and the newest of the cuvees is the Zinfandel Giuseppe & Luisa. The 2005 is a blockbuster, with deep ruby/purple color and a big, sweet nose of ripe figs, strawberry and cherry jam, mincemeat, and peppery spices. It is full-bodied, heady, opulent, and ideal for drinking over the next 5-7 years, although I suspect it will last a lot longer. The finished alcohol is 16.90%. (RP)
Explosive in its richness, this is superripe, offering layers of blackberry, raspberry, cracked pepper, licorice and smoky, meaty oak. The texture is supple and jammy, yet this is balanced with acidity and has great depth of flavor. (JL)
Deep ruby. Intensely aromatic nose offers potent blackberry and blueberry aromas strongly accented by black cardamom, dried rose, cured tobacco and musky underbrush. Lush and creamy, with impressively sweet dark fruit flavors and a hint of floral pastille. Very concentrated but also soft and approachable. This plot is planted with cuttings from the Jackass vineyard. (ST)
