Energetic aromas of wild strawberry, sweet leather and star anise lift and fill your  nose. The palate has balanced acidity and elegant tannins with layers of chocolate  and black cherry. Sweet and juicy flavors of blackberry and baking spices linger  through the finish.

Martinelli Winery

Russian River Valley, Sonoma County

The Martinelli Family has been farming their estate vineyards for over 135 years, continuing their rich history and making them 6th generation wine growers and farmers. 



The 2018 season was much calmer than 2017, due to the absence of extra rain and heat spikes experienced in 2017. The moderate temperatures in the spring and summer allowed for a longer growing season and full flavor development. There was plenty of water in the soil to carry the clusters through the long growing season with minimal dehydration. 

This wine is a barrel-blend from select Martinelli single vineyard zinfandel sites, planted with cuttings from our 135 year-old Jackass Zinfandel clones. These vineyards are grown in cool regions of the Russian River  Valley, allowing the deeper, dark flavors to develop in the grapes versus black pepper, characteristic of warmer vineyard sites.
