Martinelli Moonshine Ranch Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Robert Parker 93 Points "The 2019 Pinot Noir Moonshine Ranch has a medium ruby color and aromas of crushed red and black berries, aniseed, earth and loads of spicy nuances. The medium-bodied palate is silky, soft and accessible straight from bottle, with a long and super spicy finish. 464 cases produced."
The 2019 Pinot Noir Moonshine Ranch is a powerful, dense wine. Inky red/purplish fruit, spice and floral notes infuse the 2019 with quite a bit of character. Of all the 2019 Pinot Noirs, the Moonshine packs a serious punch. This warm, flat site rich on clay yields a Pinot of tremendous textural depth and a decidedly ripe feel with Zinfandel-like overtones.
Elegant, with fine-grained dried raspberry and cherry flavors that are backed by fresh acidity and medium-grained tannins. Minerally midpalate, with a lithe finish of hot stone and plenty of toasty richness. Drink now through 2026.
