Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The most structured, backward, and restrained of the Pinot Noirs is the dark ruby/plum-colored 2005 Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard. Notes of crushed rock, sweet cherries, raspberries and gamey autumnal forest floor notes as well as spring flowers make for a reserved but burgeoning, enormously promising aromatic display. In the mouth, it is powerful and full-bodied, with superb texture, definition, purity, good acidity, and ripe tannin. This is a remarkable Pinot Noir that should drink well for 15 or more years.
Rating: 98+
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Fresh floral and berry aromas are firm, ripe, intense and delicate on the palate, under- rather than overstated, with taut wild berry, mineral, sage and underbrush, finishing with a persistent mix of mineral and berry.

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.
