Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 95

Pale yellow-green color. Subdued but pure nose hints at beeswax. Round, full and pristine, with impressively deep flavors of quince, ginger, spring flowers, wet stone and hazelnut. Today this seems much more accessible, with more obvious sweetness of fruit, than the 2001. Finishes very long and rich, with a honeyed ripeness. Aged in 100% new barrels, but has plenty of material to support the oak.

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."
