Medium yellow. Slightly reduced aromas of pineapple, biscuit and crushed stone; this smells like Schlossberg riesling. Then fat and rich but a bit reduced and warm today, and very difficult to taste. In a rather brooding stage and rather uncompromisingly dry, with a light saline element on the back. But the wine's clean flavors and firm minerality leave me optimistic for its future development in bottle.

Light greenish gold in color, the 2003 Chardonnay Three Sisters shows orange blossom, crushed rocks, white currants, and hints of caramel and honeysuckle, with full-bodied flavors and zesty acidity. This wine can easily last up to a decade.

Wine Spectator | 93

A rich, full-bodied style, with a mix of ripe melon, fig and honeysuckle shaded by clean vanilla-tinged oak. Ends with a long, complex finish that for all its size remains elegant and refined. 294 cases made.

Medium-gold. The wine was ethereal! Orange and lemon marmalade. Hints of white peaches. On the finish, the fruits come off as caramelized mixed with a hint of hazelnut. Very complex wine that kept on changing over the 45 minutes during which it was consumed

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."
