Marcassin, which takes its name from a type of young, wild boar, produces a California interpretation of Pinot rather than a Burgundy copycat - a deliciously, a sweet, full-bodied, ripe style.

”...with an equally high ceiling is the 2009 Pinot Noir Marcassin Estate. Notes of forest floor, freshly sliced porcini mushrooms, black currants, sweet compost, raspberry, blueberry and kirsch are present in this full-bodied wine that has beautiful length and purity as well as a palate that builds incrementally." Robert Parker

”Amazingly seductive, from the initial aromas of smoky, toasty, creamy vanilla-scented oak to the richer mix of wild berry and raspberry fruit. Lifts midpalate and soars from there, finishing with a pleasing tannic grip and a long, persistent finish.” Wine Spectator
