Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.

Nicely balanced with terrific structure and full-bodied weight. Classic aromas of black currant and cassis. An elegant dinner party wine or gift. 4.7/5

|Jen rated this wine as 4.8/5 with the following review:|
Erik Olsen chose to de-stem but not crush the grapes before fermentation in stainless steel vats with pump-overs three times per day. The wine remained on the skins for an extended maceration of 20 to 30 days before being moved to barrels. The wine then matured in 100% French oak barrels (87% new) for 24 months before it was bottled.
The 2005 Marlstone is an exceptional vintage, with rich tannins that will develop additional softness and complexity with further bottle age. Deep ruby red in color, this wine is intensely aromatic, with opulent blackberry, black cherry, and cassis aromas intermingled with layers of cedar, cigar box, brown spice and dark cocoa powder. Flavors echo the complex nose and are enjoyed throughout the smooth, lingering finish.
