1997 Marcassin "Gauer Vineyard 'Upper Barn'" Alexander Valley Chardonnay

SKU #994963 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This wine offers a compelling waxy, honeyed citrus, subtle toasty, lusty nose, followed by a full-bodied, fabulously concentrated mouthful of leesy, multi-layered Chardonnay exhibiting honeyed grapefruit, citrus, and mineral flavors. A powerful, multi-dimensional, long (nearly a minute) finish adds to this Chardonnay's prodigious characteristics. (RP) Inner quote mark (1/2000)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Fuller hazy yellow. Deeper, more exotic aromas of tropical fruits and roasted nuts; quite showy today. Thick, lush and chewy; this has the depth of flavor and three-dimensional texture typical of the Marcassin wines...Finishes longer and stronger than the Lorenzo bottling. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2000)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A rich, intense, multifaceted wine with layers of ripe and spicy pear, fig, apricot and buttery notes. Long, complex aftertaste. (JL) Inner quote mark (9/2001)
