MARCASSIN PINOT NOIR SONOMA COAST MARCASSIN VINEYARD 2009

DESCRIPTION:Amazingly seductive, from the initial aromas of smoky, toasty, creamy vanilla–scented oak to the richer mix of wild berry and raspberry fruit. Lifts midpalate and soars from there, finishing with a pleasing tannic grip and a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2025. 1,800 cases made. —JL
