Review

The 2010 Pinot Noir Three Sisters Vineyard wraps around the palate with juicy red berries, flowers, hard candy and fresh mint. A silky, voluptuous wine, the 2010 perfectly captures the essence of the Martinelli house style. Hints of star anise, spice and subtle earthiness give the 2010 an attractive exoticism, while sweet floral notes add lift on the finish. The most fragrant and light-bodied of the Martinelli Pinots (in relative terms), the 2010 Three Sisters is full of the energy and verve typical of the Sonoma Coast. In 2010, this was one of the last picks. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
