"The 2019 Pinot Noir Moonshine Ranch has a medium ruby color and aromas of crushed red and black berries, aniseed, earth and loads of spicy nuances. The medium-bodied palate is silky, soft and accessible straight from bottle, with a long and super spicy finish. 464 cases produced."

"The 2019 Pinot Noir Moonshine Ranch is a powerful, dense wine. Inky red/purplish fruit, spice and floral notes infuse the 2019 with quite a bit of character. Of all the 2019 Pinot Noirs, the Moonshine packs a serious punch. This warm, flat site rich on clay yields a Pinot of tremendous textural depth and a decidedly ripe feel with Zinfandel-like overtones. -- Antonio Galloni"

Wine Spectator 93
"Elegant, with fine-grained dried raspberry and cherry flavors that are backed by fresh acidity and medium-grained tannins. Minerally midpalate, with a lithe finish of hot stone and plenty of toasty richness. Drink now through 2026. 458 cases made. KM"

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.

Muddy and Awful
"One of the worst wines I've ever drank. Even more so for the price. I've had many 20 dollar wines that were far superior. Do not buy this wine. Empire do not carry this wine or anything from this producer again."
