Marcassin Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Blue-Slide Ridge Vineyard 2002

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 2002 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge, which I questioned last year because I thought it was picking up some volatile acidity, tasted superb. It offers black raspberry, blueberry, violet, and subtle damp forest floor notes, beautiful acidity that butt... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2002 Marcassin Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge 750ml

Marcassin is the wine produced by celebrated California cult winemaker Helen Turley and her husband, John Wetlaufer on the Sonoma Coast in California. The name, meaning “wild boar” is also the name of the 20-acre vineyard where the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes for her wines are grown. Two-thirds of the winery’s production is Pinot Noir. Production is limited to 2,500 to 3,000 cases a year, with the majority of the bottles sold only to exclusive mailing list members (there is an extensive wait list to receive them). The wines typically start at around $125 a bottle to the mailing list and sell for many more times that at auction. Until 2011, the wine itself was produced at Turley’s Martinelli winery in the Russian River Valley, but are now produced solely at Marcassin.  Read less
