Martinelli Zinfandel Russian River Valley Giuseppe & Luisa 2007
Another outstanding vintage of one of the most sought after California Zinfandels on the market. We have accessiblity to just a small amount so quantities change daily!!! "The dark ruby/purple-tinged 2007 Zinfandel Giuseppe & Luisa offers sweet aromas of plums, roasted meats, pepper, kirsch, roasted herbs, and figs. This deep, dense, full-bodied effort is a singular, hedonistic style of Zinfandel that should provide immense pleasure over the next 5-6 years." - 93 points, Robert M. Parker, Jr.
Since 1896, five generations of the Martinelli family have worked together producing apples and wine in Sonoma County. We invite you to stop by the Martinelli Vineyards Tasting room in our historic Hop Barn to try our award winning estate wines.
Deep purple with a little orange mixed in. Sharp gradient from the edge (very light to very dark). Alcohol on the nose with cherries and spice aromas. Extremely well balanced. The flavors and acids play excellently off each other. Raisins, cherries, hints of plum and smoke. Wonderfully long finish.
