2008 Ma(i)sonry Marsanne 750ml
Tasting Notes: An aromatic, Rhône Valley-inspired varietal, the 2008 Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley Marsanne expresses a fragrant nose of ripe melon and iris flower with wet rock minerality. Beautifully structured with subtle French oak characteristics, the nose evolves with time in glass. On the palate, rich notes of cantaloupe, butterscotch and caramel carry on to the bright, refreshing finish. Drink immediately or hop in your time machine and drink three years ago for the most ideal flavors.
Winemaker's Notes: Crafted by Blackbird Vineyards’ winemaking team, this small lot, limited-production wine is as richly textured as each of Ma(i)sonry’s timeless art and design collections. Sourced from Stagecoach Vineyard—where rocky, volcanic soil meets the southern edge of Pritchard Hill—the 2008 Ma(i)sonry Marsanne offers optimum fruit character and pedigree. The vineyard’s elevation and terroir combined with world-class winemaking creates one of Napa Valley’s finest and varietally distinctive wines—only found at Ma(i)sonry.
