The Martinelli Family is one of the most iconic winemaking families in the industry. Located in Sonoma, their Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah and especially Zinfandel bottlings are truly the stuff of legend. Tonight’s 2008 Velluntini Ranch Zinfandel was a huge hit with @shoejitsu and me. We we both blown away by the wood spices, herbs and smoked meat flavors and drifted off into a restful food coma in the afterglow of our din-din and Zin. This varietal takes a lot of skill and a whole lotta patience and TLC, as the berries(grapes)on one Zinfandel cluster can go from green to rotted—on the same cluster! However Martinelli, in my humble opinion deftly brings out the best in the grape and is the most consistently stellar producer of Zin in the industry. Oh! And their apple juice ain’t bad either. Yeah. THAT Martinelli Family. Make sure to give @martinelli_winery a follow.
