    The nose on the wine is full of almond, cream, banana, and citric notes like lemon and orange, letting you know it is going to be acidic. And acidic it is...The palate is sharp and the acidity overwhelms the fruit followed by a lack of finish. After sitting, orange peel became apparent on the palate, but it was too little, too late. I'll stick with their Pinot Gris, which I liked significantly better.

    The inky, dark appearance is matched by a strong spicy nose full of fruit, a lot of fresh black pepper and some hints of blackberry. After opening, the spiciness fades slightly, but the fruit remains with some cedar flavor. The palate is medium-bodied with a lot of fruit, but no spice (take that nose!) and a strong tannic-grip that is pleasant and leads to a spicy finish. Good to drink now for the next few years.

    I have yet to be disappointed by a Martinelli wine and this is no exception. On open, the nose was earthy with dark plum and leather. After sitting for a few minutes, it opened to raspberry and spice. The palate was smooth with vibrant flavors of strawberry and ripe cherry. There was almost a bubblegum feel on the front. The finish was spicy and long. Ready to drink now, but let it open for a few minutes for a great experience.

    Drank recently. Past its prime. The light color that normally suggests minerality and crispness only shows a lack of ablity to age.

    Earthy on the nose, this wine was dry and tannic on the palate, followed by some more tannins on the finish. It opened in the glass to some more flavorful mushroom and earthiness, so I would definitely suggest decanting. The second bottle will sit in the cellar for a time which will hopefully round it out. A friend who we drank it with was very insistent that this was not a typical Mt. Veeder Winery product, which she normally raves over.

    Nose led me to believe I was going to love this wine. Spice and cedar initially, and then it opened up to cinnamon and nutmeg with a deep dark cherry. The palate was uninspired and a disappointment from the nose. No overwhelming flavor. It was jammy at the front and heavy at the back. It was a light to medium weight in the middle, which is not what I was expecting. Tannins were there Positively, it did have a lasting finish of pepper and cedar. It opened in the glass and bottle and I would suggest leaving it for a little bit before driniking. As an additional tasting note, my wife loved this wine. She felt the body was very fruitful and bold.

    The nose is a bold expression of dark fruits, black pepper and spice, letting you know to expect a full-body. The body at open is vegetive wih overwhelming taste of green bell pepper and tannin at the back of the palate. It opened in the glass over time to reveal some black peper which went into the long finish. It was still rough on the edges but did smooth out after a bit. I bought two bottles, which is good, because I don't think I would open this bottle for another year at least. Decanting is a must. Overall, I liked it and would recommend.

    The nose is pear with a smokey, earthy background. The palate is bright with pinapple and honeydew melon. It is extremely fruit-forward, but it is dry style. Rather than betraying the dryness, the fruit enhances the style by increasing the body. Strong finish that lingers as it fades off. Would recommend this as a inexpensive compromise for people between the dry and sweet styles.
