An addition to the range, the 2014 Pinot Noir Wild Thyme emerges from a 40 acre parcel on the Sonoma Coast between Three Sisters and Blue Slide Lee Martinelli Sr. planted in 2009. Soaring aromatics are the first sign the Wild Thyme is a special wine. We are on the Sonoma Coast. Exquisitely layered on the palate and dazzling throughout, the 2014 possesses magnificent purity and class. This is a magnificent Pinot Noir from Martinelli. Fewer than 100 cases were bottled. Readers who can find it should not hesitate, as it is a total knock-out. (AG)
A new offering form the Martinelli family, from a vineyard that borders the Marcassin Estate Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast, is their 2014 Pinot Noir Wild Thyme Vineyard. This sees about 50% new oak and the vineyard is planted with several clones such as Pommard, 943 and a few others. Wonderful black cherry and raspberry fruit interwoven with spring flowers and strawberries are all present in this deep, full-bodied, layered wine. The oak again is beautifully integrated and long. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. (RP)
