    A rich, full-bodied style, showing melon, spice and green apple flavors, with a slice of citrus. Clean and alluring, building depth on the finish, where the smoke and roasted fig flavors become more prominent.

    The 2006 Chardonnay Three Sisters Vineyard (700 cases) possesses a superb texture in addition to abundant amounts of popcorn, white currant, hazelnut, and tropical fruit blossom characteristics, superb purity as well as acidity, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a beautiful finish. In a vintage that was challenging for many California Chardonnay producers, the Three Sisters and the 2006 Marcassin Estate Chardonnays stand out as candidates for |wines of the vintage.| Given the history of the vintage and the challenging conditions for Chardonnay, I would suspect these wines will evolve quickly by Marcassin's standards, meaning they are probably best drunk in their first decade of life.

    A bit of mineral on the first impression, leading to a hazelnut, smoked butterscotch, and white fruits. Clearly this chard has shed its baby fat and become more nuanced. Drink now.

    Yellow color. Amazing complexity. Very long. Full fruit attack of tropical fruits (pineapple, mango, etc) mixed with light oak. Delicious

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."
