|Jen rated this wine as 95/100 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.
