Review

The 2009 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch reveals a dark, brooding melange of black cherries, menthol, tar, licorice and spices. This is a decidedly powerful, masculine Pinot. It shows tremendous depth, and muscle, with marvelous balance of bouquet, fruit and structure, all in the classic Martinelli style. This cold site in Green Valley is early to flower and late to ripen. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
