2016 Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley

The core of this wine bends to the vinous and savory spectrum with aromas of five-spice powder, moist forest floor, soy and a faint hint of salty ocean air. The 2016 is more tannic than typical, but the seamlessly smooth layers of extract flow and linger, producing a poised, refined finish on this delicious food-friendly wine.

Lee and George Martinelli

Burnside Vineyard

Since 1887, the Martinelli family has earned respect and acclaim for their commitment and expertise growing premium grapes in the Russian River Valley, and more recently on the Sonoma Coast. Today, the Martinelli vineyards are managed by viticulturists Lee and George Martinelli, who continue building on the family’s legacy of excellence, with their meticulous approach to vineyard care.

The Martinelli family immigrated from Italy to Sonoma seven generations ago and began planting vineyards and producing wine. We are fortunate to work with two vineyards from these viticultural masters, Pinot Noir from Burnside Vineyard and Chardonnay from Zio Tony Ranch, both marvels of meticulous farming and dedication to excellence. Both sites are located in some of the coldest areas of the Russian River Valley and consistently produce profound wines of structure, elegance and age-ability.
