2013 Mardikian Estate Pinot Noir, Magnum

Sonoma Coast

In its fifth year (and second vintage) we find the vineyard offering fruit from two additional blocks (of eight planted), increasing the number of clonal selections in this vintage to six, with a resulting step up stylistically, offering a richer, more complex wine worthy of considered contemplation. The character of Mardikian is still being revealed as the insights we gain from spending more time farming this treasured vineyard leads to all that Jim Pratt, Sander Scheer and I hoped when we first dusted our boots with these soils.

How can a wine this young show such maturity and distinctive class? Aromas and flavors of wild berry and plum join raspberry and black Aussie style licorice, plush and silky. Join me in this journey, won’t you?

Production: 20 barrels

Clones: 2A | 114 | 667 | 777 | Martini & Pommard

 

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
~ 92 Points "Outstanding" / “Moderately light cherry red color in the glass. Lovely aromas of cherry pie glaze, Asian 5-spice and a compliment of oak. Flavorful on the attack and soft and smooth on the mid palate, with a juicy core of cherry fruit. More polished and elegant in the vintage, with less color and fruit intensity, finishing with polish. A velvet hammer of flavor.” - Rusty Gaffney, PinotFile
Awards
~ 90 Points "Outstanding" / “The outstanding 2013 Pinot Noir Mardikian Estate Vineyard is dark ruby/purple, shows forest floor, black cherry and blackcurrant notes, spice, medium to full body, excellent purity and richness. It’s an impressive wine - 100% from the Sonoma Coast. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.” - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Vineyard Notes
~ 93 Points "Outstanding" / Silky texture with ripe cherry and juicy, tangy acidity; elegant, fresh and bright; long, complex and showing considerable finesse. - Anthony Dias Blue, Tasting Panel Magazine
Production Notes
~ 90 Points "Highly Recommended" / “An estate-grown wine in its second vintage, this comes from the cooler-climate hills of the coast. This plush wine is dark brown in color and brimming in stinky earth—a rich, funky and concentrated expression that’s herbal, spicy and shy in raspberry fruit.” -Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast
