Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby in color. Vibrant raspberry, Santa Rosa plum and baking spice aromas bound from the glass. A juicy mouthfeel is supported by Bing cherry and pomegranate, developing across the mid-palate to fine grain tannins on the finish. An intriguing blend of power and restraint this Pinot Noir is both savory and succulent.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Pinot Noir Martaella Vineyard is medium to deep ruby-purple in the glass, giving aromas of warm red and black cherries, red licorice, peppery spice, savory accents and a vein of sweet spice. Medium to full-bodied, silky, layered and concentrated, it has wonderfully grainy tannins and juicy acidity, finishing very long and packed with flavor.
Rating: 94+

Wine Enthusiast

Warm, supple fruit is the star of this estate-vineyard wine, planted to heirloom clones. Flavors of baking spice, earth and rose petal ride beneath a core of lengthy cherry, pomegranate and plum, with good weight on the palate. Powerful and concentrated, it has balance and structure for days.

WS 90
Wine Spectator
Big and rich, with notes of dried mint to the ripe dark fruit flavors. The dense finish offers Asian spice and mocha details. Drink now through 2023.

Ben Dewane and Novian Anderson never met, yet they raised their children with similar old-fashioned values. Hard work brings its own rewards, they would say. Be the best at what you do. Surround yourself with good people, and let them get to work. And never, ever produce anything that wouldn't make you proud.

With such similar family backgrounds, it's no wonder Joe Anderson and Mary Dewane would eventually find each other and marry. Together, they began a journey that led them to establish a winery that would make them, and their fathers, proud -- proud enough that the Benovia name pays homage to Ben and Novian.

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
