2003 Marcassin Blue Slide Ridge Pinot Noir - 98 pts!
Marcassin is truly a Cultwine with its incredibly rish, opulent Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines which are extremely difficult to obtain. Helen Turley's personal production winemaking philosophy is focused on quality and excellence always calling for, "great vineyards, meticulously farmed, limited yield, long hang time, and natural yeast."

 

The 20-acre estate vineyard on the Sonoma Coast produces only 100 barrels annually. None of the wines interact with fining, filtering, or cold stabilization and are routinely aged for five years before they're released. This is truly one of California's most highly acclaimed, rare treasure: Marcassin Estate. The CultWine rules always applies with Marcassin.........."Find it............Buy it............Drink it!"

Rating 98 RP - 2003 Marcassin Blue Slide Ridge Pinot Noir - 98 pts! The utterly profound 2003 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge is a candidate for one of California's greatest Pinot Noirs. A full-bodied beauty it offers up aromas of plums anise forest floor black and blue fruits and gamy sweet aged beef. With unreal complexity in addition to superb texture purity and definition this is a tour de force in winemaking that confirms the brilliance of this husband and wife team who recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. NOTE: Prices are approximate as the winery releases the wines at very reasonable prices but buyers who resell them usually do so in the $300-350 per bottle range. Tasting at Marcassin with Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer is one of the more satisfying appointments a wine critic could have. This is commitment to excellence at its highest level. An unwavering uncompromising brilliance and focus is reflected in not only meticulous work in the vineyard but also in highly detailed winemaking that consistently succeeds in producing some of the finest Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs in the world. Even more interesting since they have rarely given interviews will be the two books that Turley and Wetlaufer are writing independently of each other. They possess an accumulation of knowledge and experience that is as the advertising industry would say "priceless." Hopefully some of that will soon make its way onto the written pages for future generations. RP
