Producer Notes

Martinelli Winery is steeped in tradition - the founders were Giuseppe Martinelli and Luisa Vellutini, originally from a village in Tuscany, who eloped as teenagers and landed in Sonoma in 1887. Though resources were scarce, Giuseppe, armed with extensive viticultural knowledge, earned and borrowed enough to purchase a bit of land - the current 60-degree slope which is now known as Jackass Hill...

I LIKE THIS WINE: (Edit) 98 Points Sunday, May 08, 2011 - Wow. After reading on the label that this was 17.1%, we were a little nervous we might be headed into that rarified "rocket fuel" level. But, boy, were we wrong. The nose was an incredible melange of blackberry, raspberry, and rich earth. From the first sip to the last this was a near perfect wine - boysenberry, blackberry, black raspberry, and a hint of oak was in perfect balance with sweet tannins. The alcohol was way in the back without a hint of heat. The finish was layer after layer of deep fruit. An unbelievable wine. We had this with Jamaican BBQ chicken, Dad's homemade sausages, and grilled cheese fennel rolls.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
