Wild Thyme Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014


The Wine Advocate


Robert M Parker Jr.




A new offering form the Martinelli family, from a vineyard that borders the Marcassin Estate Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast, is their 2014 Pinot Noir Wild Thyme Vineyard. This sees about 50% new oak and the vineyard is planted with several clones such as Pommard, 943 and a few others. Wonderful black cherry and raspberry fruit interwoven with spring flowers and strawberries are all present in this deep, full-bodied, layered wine. The oak again is beautifully integrated and long. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
