The star of this trio is the 2006 Pinot Noir Marcassin Estate, which represents a California version of a grand cru Clos de la Roche from the likes of Ponsot. A mulit-dimensional wine of exquisite intensity, it offers up notes of rose petals, wild strawberries, cherries, blueberries, and blackberries. Its floral component, fabulous concentration, awesome texture, and expansive, broad mouthfeel make for a Pinot Noir bordering on perfection. While less evolved than the Three Sisters or Blue Slide Ridge, it is more evolved than most Marcassin Pinot Noirs are at age three. John Wetlaufer and Helen Turley served it next to a 2006 DRC La Tache, which was almost undrinkable (stemmy, metallic, frightfully tart because of green acid, and obviously made from underripe fruit), and was dwarfed by the prodigious Marcassin. It should drink well for 10-15+ years.
