About this Deal
2017 Martellotto Winery Le Bon Temps Roule Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills: 4 Bottles
94 Points, 2019 Las Vegas Global Wine Competition
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 displays notes of oak, lavender, and raspberry that 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 Vineyards & Winery in Sta. Rita Hills. Located just over a hill from the Sea Smoke Vineyard and south of Highway 246, these are some very lovingly and organically farmed vines. 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. This will be a very intriguing wine in 5 – 10 years, but given the 450-case production, it will not be around that long.
Blend: 100% Pinot Noir
Appellation: Sta. Rita Hills
Barrel Regime: Aged 11 months in 100% French oak, 10% new

Expertly Crafted. Distinctly Original.
The Old World informs Greg's motivation to make wines that speak of a unique vineyard in California. Greg loves wines that have a vibrant acidity combined with bright fruit and an intangible, hard to pinpoint X factor. Mass-produced wines that are squeaky clean and uniform are less interesting. Starting with healthful and sustainably farmed grapes, Greg combines creative fermentation techniques with an artistic blending prior to bottling in order to produce wines that are distinctive and delicious. Greg’s intention is to make remarkable wines of consequence, consistency, value, and varietal expression.Several of the wines are sourced from organic vineyards and produced with native yeast fermentations. Martellotto wines are allocated, bottle-numbered, vineyard-designate wines and area pleasure to share. We invite you to explore each of our wines and find the ones that speak to you.
