description

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 joy the size of a mobile boulder, 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.  

I was born in Texas and the good times of NOLA, Jazzfest and Cajun/Creole cuisine were nearby or a short jaunt away. I love Pinot, and New Orleans is a great town to drink Burgundy and Pinot to pair with the outstanding foods. This wine is produced in small quantities to remind me about my own history and roots.
