Marcassin Vineyard Pinot Noir 2000
Wine AdvocateThe magnificent 2000 Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard continues to develop even more complexity. Truly great stuff, this medium to full-bodied 2000 exhibits scents of rose petals intertwined with charcuterie, spring flowers, blue and black fruits, and hints of raspberries, cola, and mint oil. This profound, extremely nuanced, powerful, exuberant Pinot Noir boasts terrific definition and personality. Anticipated maturity: now-2014.
Wine SpectatorWonderful purity of flavor and excellent concentration. Spades of ripe, rich plum, black cherry, boysenberry and wild berry fruit are accented by rose petal aromas and a nice touch of fresh earth. Shows heat and very ripe tannins, but what impresses most is the depth and clarity of the fruit.
