"The 2013 Bondi Home Ranch Pinot Noir is weighty, complex, and lively, with a gorgeous nose loaded with an inter-mix of blue and red fruits, toast, and hints of tea leaves. Great power on the palate, with really expressive fruit flavors of spicy cherry and cola." —winemaker
"The 2013 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch is all about texture. Seamless and expressive in the glass, the 2013 impresses for its balance and overall sense of harmony. The 80% new oak barrels are totally integrated in this impeccable and highly expressive Pinot. Sweet floral and spice notes add the final layers of complexity. Bondi Home Ranch is the coolest Pinot site Martinelli works with and is distinguished by its very long vegetative cycle." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"From the coolest vineyard (and the last to be harvested), the 2013 Bondi Home Ranch Pinot Noir is made from Dijon clones 943, 667 and the Calera selection, which is believed to have been sourced from one of the DRC vineyards. The wine exhibits a dense ruby/purple color and a round, juicy nose of black cherries, strawberries, forest floor and underbrush. Deep, rich, tannic, structured, and the most backward of all these 2013 Pinots, it should be drunk over the next 10-15 years." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"Here is a big, bold, unabashedly ripe wine that is sure to receive mixed reviews depending on one's particular Pinot perspective. If admittedly far from being subtle stuff and thus anathema to those whose definition of balance hinges on high acid and low alcohol, it is extraordinarily generous in very well-defined varietal fruit, and a minor note of late arriving heat is its only concession to high ripeness. It is, in fact, quite well-balanced for the ample wine that it is, and it scores high marks for its depth and length. It accordingly wants service with richer foods and will be right at home with dishes ranging from grilled steaks and chops to the likes of a savory lamb stew." —Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine
