Bottle report: Pristine condition.

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.

“Just when you think the duo of Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer can’t make greater wines, they bowl over the taster with an array of exquisite quality that really must be tasted to be believed.

“…always seems to remind me of a grand cru from Burgundy’s Côte de Nuits,.. Dense ruby/plum, its sweet nose of strawberries, black cherry liqueur, fresh porcini mushrooms and forest floor is followed by a dark, full-bodied, rich and concentrated wine that is supple, dramatic, and even flamboyant.”
Robert Parker
