Winemaker Notes

Zio Tony Ranch Pinot Noir has aromas of blackberry and kirsch, and flavors of spicy cherry cola and voluptuous vanilla blackberry.

Critical Acclaim

WS 91
Wine Spectator
A Pinot with grace, finesse and polish, with layers of smoky, creamy cherry cobbler flavors, right down to the crust. Elegant and polished, it keeps repeating the tantalizing flavors.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2004 Pinot Noir Zio Tony Ranch shows plenty of raspberry, soy, and fig notes along with hints of pomegranate and cherry. This spicy, full-bodied Pinot reveals nicely integrated oak, a savory, expansive palate, and a heady finish.

The Martinelli family has been farming in Sonoma County since 1860. All of the wines are produced from estate grown grapes which are farmed by Lee Martinelli Sr., and sons, Lee, Jr. and George, continuing five generations of the proud family legacy of caretaking the land. The Martinelli family along with winemaker Bryan Kvamme and consulting winemaker, Helen Turley (1992-2010) work from beginning to end; analyzing soil samples, choosing rootstocks, varietals and clones that are the best matched to a particular growing site, seasonal primping and pruning in the field, and the final blends for the finished wines. The Martinelli family specializes in single-vineyard Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel and Syrah.

Red Wine

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, "cult" status.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.

Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
