($50) Light red. Highly complex nose features dark cherry, lavender, musky earth and mineral aromas; this was raised in 100% new oak but I find the influence minimal. Bright cherry and dark berry flavors are concentrated and show excellent energy, with dusty tannins lending grip. Finishes with a light, crisp texture and a lingering floral pastille note.

From the cold Green Valley, the 2005 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch Water Trough Vineyard shows loads of tannin, a greener, cooler character, with plenty of pomegranate, sour cherry, menthol, and forest floor. It tastes more like a Loire Valley wine than the typical Pinot Noir from Sonoma. Nevertheless, it has fine ripeness, medium body, and good underlying acidity. Kudos to the Martinelli family, one of the great old winemaking families of Northern California.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Intense, ripe and fleshy, with rich currant, black cherry and wild berry fruit that's deep and well-centered, with hints of anise and cedar. Ends with a fruity aftertaste that's complex and focused.
