2012 MARTINELLI “TERRA FELICE” SYRAH, RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY
One of the most celebrated producers in the Russian River Valley, Martinelli brings decades of impressive scores and a reputation for excellence. Consulting winemaker Erin Green worked alongside Helen Turley in the early ’90’s on some of her projects, including Bryant Family & Martinelli. She also held a position as director of winemaking at Pahlmeyer.
Terra Felice is a superior blend, composed using several of the winery’s best estate Vineyards. Spending 10 months in premium French oak barrels, the fruit benefited greatly from a long, drawn-out growing season and the end result is both fascinating and remarkably delicious.
With a mere 8 barrels of Terra Felice produced, I strongly recommend securing a case of this classic and memorable Syrah. The wine is gorgeous right now, and will continue to evolve for another 5-7 years.
