Marcassin Vineyard Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge 2002 is an exceptional Californian Pinot it is stunning – a must buy for Pinot lovers. 

" extraordinary accomplishment that must be tasted to be believed." Robert Parker

“Shows amazing richness, depth and purity of flavor, with a concentrated mix of blackberry, red plum, wild berry and cherry kirsch. Intense, complex and deftly balanced, with a long, persistent finish.” Wine Spectator

“Deep aromas of dark raspberry, smoke, truffle and porcini mushroom. Then highly concentrated, sweet and high-pitched, with a bright, sappy quality that comes as a surprise after the lower-toned aromas. Wonderfully dense, lush wine with intriguing saline and earthy nuances. Perhaps best today on the lush, fine-grained aftertaste, which features outstanding sappy length. This vineyard, developed jointly by Turley, Wetlaufer and the Martinelli family (Turley also makes a Blue Slide pinot under the Martinelli label), is increasingly looking like one of California 's handful of grand cru sites for pinot noir.” Stephen Tanzer

“The 2002 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge…tasted superb. It offers black raspberry, blueberry, violet, and subtle damp forest floor notes, beautiful acidity that buttresses its superb richness, intensity, and ripeness, medium to full body, and a stunning finish.”
