The Bondi Home Ranch sits at the southernmost tip of the Russian River Valley. The 2017 Bondi Home Ranch Pinot Noir has sweet aromas of blueberry, black cherry and sweet sandalwood. The palate is weighty and rich with a lengthy finish with deep flavors of boysenberry and hints of clean earth.
Our tastings with the utterly vivacious Regina Martinelli, sales director for her family's 130-year-old winery, are always showstoppers. Every one of this winery's Chardonnays, Pinots Noirs, Syrahs, and Zinfandels is outstanding. If we know anything about what we're doing, the wines are going to turn you on. They have it all: brilliantly expressive fruit, concentration, and complexity. It's not often that a winery comes by and reminds us why we love wine so much. Put together a mixed case and experience the thrill for yourself. Most of these wines are sold only through the winery and are very hard to find.
