Critical Acclaim

"Sleek and complex, elegant and delicate, this is beautifully crafted, with subtle campfire, roasted marshmallow, ripe cherry, plum, strawberry and blueberry flavors. Finishes with fine-grained tannins."
96 Points

"The 2006 Pinot Noirs that are just being released include the 2006 Pinot Noir Three Sisters Vineyard. While it has closed down since I tasted it last year, it does reveal a dark plum/ruby color as well as a smoky bouquet of Asian plum sauce, soy, forest floor and sweet black cherries. Like many Marcassin Pinots, it possesses a Morey St.-Denis-like character.
