External Reviews for Marcassin Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Blue-Slide Ridge Vineyard
The most structured, backward, and restrained of the Pinot Noirs is the dark ruby/plum-colored 2005 Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard. Notes of crushed rock, sweet cherries, raspberries and gamey autumnal forest floor notes as well as spring flowers make for a reserved but burgeoning, enormously promising aromatic display. In the mouth, it is powerful and full-bodied, with superb texture, definition, purity, good acidity, and ripe tannin. This is a remarkable Pinot Noir that should drink well for 15 or more years.

A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2005 Marcassin Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard 750ml
The 2005 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge displays the sexiest, most exotic side of Pinot Noir with its dense, dark raspberry, floral and forest floor notes intermixed with spice and fresh mushrooms. Its sweet, broad fruit, deep ruby/plum color, terrific body, and lush, heady mouthfeel make for a remarkable wine. As it sits in the glass, smoky blueberries and wet stones, even a gun flint-like aroma, seem to emerge. Drink this over the next 12-15 years.
