International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($50) Good deep red. More complex nose combines brambly dark berries and rooty forest floor scents. Lush and creamy if a bit youthfully aggressive today. Shows a distinctly darker fruit character than the Zio Tony example and comes across as younger. A big, broad pinot, finishing with dusty tannins and a suggestion of sassafras. In contrast to the Zio Tony, this really calls for 6 to 12 months of patience.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 162

The extroverted 2004 Pinot Noir Moonshine Ranch boasts a dense ruby/purple color and a big, sweet nose of blackberries, forest floor, dried herbs, raspberries, and sweet cherry liqueur. Dense, rich, and full-bodied, this is a knock-out, full-throttle Pinot Noir to drink over the next 7-10 years. This wine had just been bottled when I tasted it, so I suspect my ratings might be somewhat conservative. Before readers inundate the office with questions, the Martinellis were not happy with the Syrah vineyards in 2004 and did not make any wines.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

A bold, ripe, assertive style, intense and full of ripe, spicy wild berry, blackberry, rose petal and light cedar notes. The acidity and tannins give it a vibrant mouthfeel and it keeps repeating the tasty fruit flavors. 580 cases made.

This wine delivers. A very rich and full-bodied pinot. Well-balanced tannins and oak. The wine still has a "young" touch to it with a deep colour. Do not decant before serving, on the contrary be gentle with air...
