Marimar Estate Mas Cavalls Pinot Noir Dona Margarita Vineyard Sonoma Coast 2014
Man, don’t even ask us how we pulled this one off -- it’s hard enough to get ANY wine from Marimar Estate from ANY vintage, much less a 91-POINTER at nearly 45% OFF! This is lush, silky, simply BEAUTIFUL, feminine and powerful, delicious pinot!!
Dang! This just shined like a beacon on a foggy night in our tasting last week -- one of those wines that crushes everything else on the table and gets downed at record speed by the staff as soon as we clear out (what’s a better testament than that??). Boom, sign us up! Hailing from a cool-climate vineyard on the Bohemian Highway, between Freestone and Occidental in the Sonoma Coast appellation, the yields are low and the quality is high...as you’ll taste. Round, lush, superbly balanced, this just feels, well, CLASSY, full of finesse and complexity. AT THIS PRICE?!
Fumble in anticipation with corkscrew and get that cork out ASAP.
Pour. Whiff. Smile. Sip. Bask in pinot euphoria. Feel the tension in your muscles melt away.

About The Producer
Nestled in the rolling hills of western Sonoma County, the Russian
River/Green Valley appellation is a perfect microclimate for growing
Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Only 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean and 50
miles north of San Francisco, the site is influenced by the sea's
cooling breezes and drifting fog. That is why Marimar Torres selected
this privileged location to "export" the Torres family legacy of fine
wines to California.
