Marcassin Three Sisters Vineyard Pinot Noir 2005
Pinot Noir from Sonoma County, California
- Ships Fri, Dec 132013-12-13
"Mushroom, forest floor, fresh turned earth and mineral notes give this a solid baseline of earthy flavors that provide traction on the full-bodied palate, offering wild berry and raspberry hints while maintaining its pleasing earthy texture and flavor."
