The 2005 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge displays the sexiest, most exotic side of Pinot Noir with its dense, dark raspberry, floral and forest floor notes intermixed with spice and fresh mushrooms. Its sweet, broad fruit, deep ruby/plum color, terrific body, and lush, heady mouthfeel make for a remarkable wine. As it sits in the glass, smoky blueberries and wet stones, even a gun flint-like aroma, seem to emerge.

Intense and focused, complex and full-bodied, with tiers of spicy black cherry, wild berry, raspberry and plum, at points subtle yet expansive, with touches of anise, mineral, sage and cherry rhubarb. The finish sails on and on.

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."
