Slightly deeper yellow than the Zio Tony. Pure, subdued nose hints at lemon, ginger, spring flowers and flinty minerality. Then almost shockingly fat, broad and rich in the mouth, with elevated alcohol contributing to the impression of plumpness. Dry yet luscious, with a honeyed flavor. Finishes with considerable breadth and power, and more obvious structure than the Zio Tony. But this one really calls for a year or two of additional aging.

Performing even better than it did last year, the 2004 Chardonnay Three Sisters Vineyard reveals an extraordinary bouquet of leesy brioche, hazelnuts, orange blossoms, lemon oil, quince, and wet stones. Full-bodied with huge, long, concentrated flavors, it first tasted like a grand cru Chablis, and next like a grand cru Batard-Montrachet. This is a fabulous wine boasting terrific acidity as well as a long finish. Given Marcassin's historic track record of Chardonnays lasting 10-15 years, I would not be surprised to see this 2004 age like a top white Burgundy.

Superrich and extracted, bordering on unctuous, with green apple, lime, spice and floral scents unfolding. Complex, concentrated, long, focused and persistent, ending with a delicate aftertaste. 250 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."
