Winemaker Notes

The visionary husband and wife team of John Wetlaufer and Helen Turley have created a largely unprecedented legacy of extraordinary quality that is unsurpassed by anyone else in Northern California.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The medium to full-bodied, dark ruby/plum-colored 2010 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge displays the blue fruit spectrum along with some raspberries, fresh mushrooms and spring flowers, a layered mouthfeel, more minerality than the explosive 2009 exhibited, outstanding ripeness and lots of personality. This is clearly a grand cru site owned by the Martinellis.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Notably tight and reined-in, with fresh damp earth, forest floor and underbrush the dominant flavors at this point. Stiff tannins keep the olallieberry, wild berry and raspberry notes in check. Tasted twice with consistent notes. Drink now through 2022.

Marcassin, California
Marcassin Winery Image

If you haven’t heard of Helen Turley, or tasted one of her wines, you’ve definitely not been paying close enough attention to the wines coming out of California in the last 10 years. She is arguably one of the most influential winemakers in the business, receiving critical acclaim for almost every wine she touches. Aside from her own boutique winery, Marcassin, which she runs with husband John Wetlaufer, Helen has been the consulting winemaker for some of the best wineries in the country – Colgin, Bryant Family, Martinelli – just to name a few.

Marcassin (french for 'young wild boar') is a VERY small winery – in fact it’s so small that the wines have actually been made at the Martinelli winery in Russian River Valley. Located on the Sonoma Coast, the Marcassin vineyard is planted to 50/50 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and is about 10 acres in size. Fruit for the other vineyard designated wines is sourced from other neighboring vineyards. Marcassin will always be a small winery; John & Helen feel the perfect size is 100 barrels, enough for 2,500 cases.

Helen’s winemaking philosophy is simple: great vineyards, meticulously farmed, limited yield, long hang time and natural yeast. She approaches every project with these same priorities.
