Martinelli Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Moonshine Ranch 2009
92 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Bright ruby-red. Spicy red berries and cherry on the nose, with suave floral and Asian spice qualities adding complexity. Raspberry and cherry flavors are framed by dusty tannins and given a tangy edge by bitter berry skin and blood orange. Quite deep but surprisingly brisk and refreshing, with excellent closing thrust and cling. (May/Jun 2011) 450 cases produced.
