Marcassin is Turley's own label in parnership with her husband, John Wetlaufer who is a viticulturist. Together they produce 2,500 to 3,000 cases of both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with 80% of the wine sold to mailing list members.The waiting list to join the allocation list is long, with some waiting years to get a change to purchase.

Tech + Tasting Notes

The 2011 Marcassin Pinot Noir has notes of sweet berry fruit, incence, toasty oak, cherry scented herb and savory underbrush. Slightly lighter style of Pinor Noir from Marcassin. A challenging vintage but the wines turned out outstanding, and Burgundian in approach. Delicious fruit, good acidity and perfect precision seems to linger on the palate.
