More backward and brooding 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. Slightly more tannic, backward and reserved than the more exuberant and flamboyant Blue Slide Ridge, this loaded 2009 should be forgotten for another 1-2 years and drunk over the following 15+.
Winespectator / James Suckling (97)
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.?
