Review

The 2011 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch is one of the darker, more savory wines in the range. Sage, rosemary, tobacco, licorice, new leather and dark plums all blossom in an intense, full-bodied Pinot loaded with personality and class. Of all the Pinot sites Martinelli works with, the Bondi Home Ranch has the longest growing season, which may explain the wine's distinctly savory personality. There is a lot to like here.
