  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    A rich, intense, multifaceted wine with layers of ripe and spicy pear, fig, apricot and buttery notes. Long, complex aftertaste. Drink now through 2005. 275 cases made.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    Fuller hazy yellow. Deeper, more exotic aromas of tropical fruits and roasted nuts; quite showy today. Thick, lush and chewy; this has the depth of flavor and three-dimensional texture typical of the Marcassin wines. Closed up in the glass. Finishes longer and stronger than the Lorenzo bottling.

  • 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."
