International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

Deep red-ruby color. Initially reticent nose opened spectacularly to show raspberry, mocha, minerals and smoke, along with sexy underbrush and forest floor elements. Began broad but closed and hiding its sweetness but with aeration showed outstanding volume, a seductively spherical texture and a restrained but nonetheless compelling sweetness of raspberry and underbrush flavors. Denser and finer-grained than the Blue Slide Ridge bottling; not obviously superior today but will probably surpass it five years down the road. Finishes with outstanding length.

To quote my original tasting note, the 2004 Pinot Noir Marcassin Estate is -utterly profound.- Still youthful, this adolescent hits all the sweet spots on the palate as well as the olfactory senses. Dense plum/purple-colored with notes of Asian soy, porcini mushrooms, roasted meats, barbecue spices and lots of blueberry, plum, raspberry and black currant fruit, it is a deep, full-bodied, opulent tour de force in winemaking. Its youthfulness suggests it will continue to drink beautifully for at least another 15-20 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

This complex Pinot shows a mix of forest floor, porcini mushroom, dried currant and berry, with touches of smoke, anise and new oak. Pure, focused and concentrated, this is still very tightly wound, ending with a supple texture and a scent of rose petal.

Powerful, bright, complex, and persistent aromas of sweet fruit (blackberry), high toned caramel, French vanilla ice cream, and gravel with hints of dark roasted coffee plus something that I just can't put my finger on - its a moving target - that is enchanting nonetheless. Mouthcoating flavor echo the nose and last for a considerable amount of time. Very impressive and frankly this wine is as good as New World Pinot Noir gets.
