Martinelli 'Moonshine' Pinot Noir 2018
Vinous Media 95
"The 2018 Pinot Noir Moonshine Ranch is laced with an exotic mlange of game, spice, blood orange, mint and dried flowers, all of which give it a distinctly savory, potent feel to match its brooding personality. I would give it a few years in bottle to soften. Time in the glass brings out a whole range of rose petal and lavender nuances, along with a good deal of lift as well.
-- Antonio Galloni"

Wine Advocate 92
"Medium ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir Moonshine Ranch opens with pretty notes of saline, bergamot and flowers over a core of raspberries, red cherries and rhubarb. Medium-bodied and silky, it explodes in the mouth with bright, perfumed red fruits, with lots of juicy uplift and a long, gently warm finish."

James Suckling 92
"A full-bodied pinot with loads of ripe berry and toasted oak that gives a chocolate and walnut undertone to the whole thing. Its full-bodied, chewy and rather extracted but there is juicy ripe fruit at the finish. Drink in 2022."

The Estate
The Martinelli family has been growing grapes in the Russian River Valley since 1887. At the ages of 19 and 16, Giuseppe Martinelli and Luisa Vellutini left their small village in the Tuscany region of Italy and made their way to California looking for land to farm and start a winery. Giuseppe had been a winemaker in Italy and with his viticultural knowledge he was hired to plant a vineyard for a farmer in Forestville. 100 years later, the historic Martinelli Estate vineyards are farmed by Lee Martinelli, Sr., and sons Lee, Jr. and George Martinelli. The wines are made by winemaker Bryan Kvamme. These handcrafted wines are unfined, unfiltered, neither cold nor heat stabilized and may contain naturally occurring sediment.
