The most structured, backward, and restrained of the Pinot Noirs is the dark ruby/plum-colored 2005 Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard. Notes of crushed rock, sweet cherries, raspberries and gamey autumnal forest floor notes as well as spring flowers make for a reserved but burgeoning, enormously promising aromatic display. In the mouth, it is powerful and full-bodied, with superb texture, definition, purity, good acidity, and ripe tannin.

Fresh floral and berry aromas are firm, ripe, intense and delicate on the palate, under- rather than overstated, with taut wild berry, mineral, sage and underbrush, finishing with a persistent mix of mineral and berry.

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."
