One of the great cult wineries and one that definitely lives up to the hype. The legend Helen Turley runs this tiny iconic production. If you aren’t familiar, she is probably the most influential female winemaker 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 including Colgin, Bryant Family and Martinelli. These are some of the absolute most difficult bottles of wine to get your hands on in the country, and my price is the lowest you’ll find online by far.
Located on the Sonoma Coast, the Marcassin vineyard is planted to 50/50 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and is only about 10 acres in size. The production each year is about 100 barrels spread out across their entire collection. The Marcassin Vineyard 2012 Pinot Noir has a little bit of age to it, so it’s incredibly expressive, refined and particularly delicious.
