Review

The 2009 Chardonnay Martinelli Road is one of the more tightly-wound wines in this lineup. Lemon, white flowers, mint and crushed rocks flow effortlessly from the glass. Clean notes of minerality frame the long, intense finish. Martinelli Road was once planted with Zinfandel alone. It remains dry farmed to this day. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
