  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 97

    A gorgeous Pinot that is striking from the get-go. Ripe and sublime, with sweet plum, blueberry and wild berry flavors that are fresh and vivid, this is at once intense and persistent, yet also graceful and refined.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

    The brilliant 2007 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge reveals a DRC character with notes of forest floor, blueberries and raspberries. Riper and richer than anything but the greatest vintages of DRC (i.e., 1990, 1999, 2003 and 2005), it reveals sweet, broad flavors, ripe tannins and a long, layered finish. It should drink well for at least a decade.

    Helen Turley is a genius.
    Author: Ronn L
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."

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
