    June 14, 2017 - Very, very surprisingly good. I am slowly learning that Marcassin + age is a good thing. Initial funk that many did not like, mostly medicinal, and initially an almost sour, acidic taste. But quickly began evolving and filling out, 30-60 minutes in a decanter and this was singing. Very complex mid palate and finish, herbs, spices, dark fruit and earth. Nicely balanced. I do not see any further improvement coming, but certainly still good to go for a few more years.

    June 3, 2017 - The 2002 Marcassin was very good given it was 15 years old. Drink now.

    December 31, 2015 - Opened about 30 minutes before tasting. Lovely deep red, aromatic nose of lavender and ripe berries. Quite smooth on the palate with a complex taste of berries, spice, and lavender. Long finish and little sign of the 15% abv. Lovely wine, more complex than an 05 Kistler Catherine which was tasted in parallel, although the fruit on the Kistler was brighter.

    December 18, 2015 - A quintessential Marcassin! Absolutely delicious pinot from the first pour but continued to evolve in the glass. Last of the 2002, wish I had more!
