International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($75) Good full red. Complex nose melds cherry, plum, spices, nuts and smoky oak. Concentrated, suave and sophisticated, with a slightly wild blue and black fruit character complicated by spices. Dense and fine-grained pinot, finishing with silky tannins and noteworthy complexity. Similar in style to the superb 2003 example.

The 2004 Pinot Noir Blue Slide possesses a classic floral, herbal, and blueberry-scented nose with hints of soy, underbrush, and flint. The wine is deep, rich, medium to full-bodied, long, and velvety-textured. It's a beauty from that cool-climate site on the Sonoma Coast. 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. (Release date 9/06)

Very ripe, with a candied apple and cherry edge to the flavors. Yet it's intense and focused, with mineral and earth notes and a complex finish. 465 cases made.

Is this really a pinot?! Deep dark fruit that mingles with alcohol in the nose. A heavy, yet perfectly balanced mouth feel - the prevalence of alcohol in the nose is matched by strong fruit and sharp acid. and a gorgeous finish. This will last for a few more years.
