 “Powerful aromas of black cherry, cola, dried cranberries and plum; Deep, layered flavors of black raspberry, dark plum, chocolate, rhubarb, & cola. The big forward fruit, combined with ultra-fine tannins create a fabulous length, and very pleasurable velvety finish. This is a Pinot for those who enjoy delicious forward fruit, concentration and the classic silky finish that only great Pinot Noirs can deliver!

This tremendous Russian River Valley Pinot find has all the pedigree to become the Next Cult Pinot Producer. Winemaker Webster Marquez already has a cult like following for his Anthill Farms Pinots, and combined with his experience at highly respected Pinot producer Williams-Selyem, the new Donatiello Russian River Pinot is a wine to secure now! At a special price of less than $34/btl and with the added benefit of shipping included on case purchases, the new Donatiello Pinot is one of our best discoveries this year. I strongly recommend adding a 15 bottle case or two of this magnificent Russian River Pinot to your cellar. This reminds me of when we first discovered Pinot producers such as Ketcham Estate, Pey Lucia and Walter Hansel….

The Prince of Pinot – writing in his Pinot File – defined Webster while discussing the Anthill Farms project,


Webster Marquez grew up on the East Coast and attended college in Virginia. Here he began working as an assistant winemaker at Jefferson Vineyards. He then moved to Sonoma County where he joined Williams Selyem. Currently he is the winemaker at C. Donatiello Winery in Healdsburg. The trio’s goal is to craft Pinot Noirs that “express the growing site and the characteristics of the vintage, and above all else, taste good.” They disdain the riper style of Pinot Noir, looking more for freshness of flavor and acidity.”
