($75) Pale yellow with a green tinge. Subdued but very pure aromas of pineapple, clove and minerals. Larger-scaled and fatter in the mouth than the Upper Barn but quite dry, classic and closed today. This very rich, chewy chardonnay initially seemed a bit blurry with alcohol, but the fruit and mineral character emerged with aeration, and the finish is wonderfully full, sweet and long.

Crisp, with good minerality, definition, and subtle richness is the 2001 Chardonnay Three Sisters Vineyard. Orange blossom, marzipan, citrus oil, crushed stones, and a touch of smoky scents emerge from this full-bodied 2001. It offers beautiful honeyed richness, great definition, and a long finish. I even noticed a hint of papaya. Drink it over the next 7-10 years.

Wine Spectator | 98

Satiny, ultrarich and deeply complex, with layers of floral, butterscotch, fig, apricot and pear flavors that are impeccably balanced; while the flavors are bold and concentrated on the entry, this wine turns amazingly elegant and sophisticated on the finish. Drink now through 2009. 200 cases made.

About This Producer


One of the most influential mavens of modern California winemaking, Helen Turley creates in Marcassin wines that are among the most sought-after in California. Though the wines are made following a traditionalist Burgundian style, they are unique, complex representations of California Pinot and Chardonnay. Turley's straightforward winemaking philosophy is, "...great vineyards, meticulously farmed, limited yield, long hang time and natural yeast."
