2000 Marcassin "Blue Slide Ridge" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1015246 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2000 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge, my candidate for a DRC Richebourg on steroids vote, possesses the extraordinary aromatics that this vineyard routinely produces. The blueberry, blackberry, forest floor, mushroom, and gamy notes are all offered in a provocative smorgasbord of aromas. There is tremendous fruit intensity, medium to full body, outstanding acid levels, and a long, textured, spectacular finish. It is a compelling Pinot Noir to drink over the next 7-8 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2003)

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full ruby-red color. Knockout nose of black raspberry, blueberry, coffee, truffle, smoke, wild herbs and mint. On the palate, a remarkably sweet, creamy, almost honeyed elixir of wild berries. As lush and mouthfilling as this is, it's also delineated and vibrant. Incredibly deep, nuanced Pinot Noir that finishes with firm, ripe tannins and great palate-saturating persistence. This should be rated XXX. This may well age well, but it's utterly irresistible right now. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2004)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of ripe cherry, wild berry and citrus show optimal ripeness, giving this a sweet plum core of flavors before adding a nice touch of fresh earth. Tannins are ripe and integrated, finishing with a dash of flavor akin to strawberry rhubarb pie. *Collectibles* (JL) Inner quote mark (5/2005)
