Martellotto's "Evening Red' Bordeaux blend Steals the Spotlight. One of the best value and high quality red blends from the Happy Canyon in Santa Barbara.
Greg Martellotto believes blends are better and this wine highlights the symphonic harmony of three Bordeaux varietals: 40% Malbec, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 25% Cab. Franc.
Aromas of luxardo cherry, cedar, and fresh Med. herbs entice. Flavors of ripe plum, blueberry, and oak dance on the tongue.
About the Wine
Loosely translated from Cajun French, the name of Greg Martellotto’s latest Pinot phenom means “Let the Good Times Roll.” It’s an appropriate phrase; this elegant limited-production expression of some of California’s most sought-after Pinot grapes brings the party, at a price that won’t crush a wine lover’s wallet. Sensual notes of oak, lavender and raspberry seamlessly transition from the nose to the palate, where they’re accompanied by a voluptuous structure and sublime balance.
The 2017 vintage is sourced from the exciting new project at Spear Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills. The grapes are farmed organically. Located just over a hill from the Seasmoke vineyard and south of Highway 246, these are some very lovingly and attentively farmed vines.
The wine aged in 100% French oak, 10% new. It was bottled after 11 months to maintain a freshness and vivacity. Like all great Pinots, this wine is a bit of a seductress. It allures with notes of spice, light cedar, and a bright raspberry. Slowly, it reveals itself with aeration.
