Winemaker's Notes

The 2009 Bondi Home Ranch Pinot Noir has aromas of leather with earthy, herbal flavors along with notes of cola-berry and red cherry.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch reveals a dark, brooding melange of black cherries, menthol, tar, licorice and spices. This is a decidedly powerful, masculine Pinot. It shows tremendous depth, and muscle, with marvelous balance of bouquet, fruit and structure, all in the classic Martinelli style. This cold site in Green Valley is early to flower and late to ripen. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024."
95 Points

"Tight and focused, delivering a rich core of dark berry, mocha and toasty oak character, with a complex range of flavors that are deep and persistent. Ends with a touch of cedar and spice."
92 Points

"Deep red. Seductive, highly perfumed aromas of black raspberry, cherry-cola, smoky herbs and rose. Lush and creamy but energetic, offering sweet dark berry flavors, a hint of fruitcake and good back-end snap. Blends richness and vivacity smoothly and finishes with lingering sweetness and an echo of candied rose."

But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
