Marcien, Proprietary Red, Los Carneros, Napa Valley 2015
Marcien is sublime… no protruding tail fins or gaudy chrome bumpers on this classic. Function and form interweave into complete deliciousness. Delightfully deep aromas and flavors of red and black berry, currant and fresh plum fruits. Enticing savory herb notes of bayleaf with hints of Kalamata olive, lavender, star anise, mocha and leather. It all comes together with tightly-woven, supple tannins for excellent age-worthy structure and a driving, persistent finish. The 2015 Marcien is sterling proof that Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon thrive in RSV’s organically farmed Northern Carneros vineyards – The Right Bank of Napa Valley. Crafted with an eye toward structure and freshness, the wine has a mystifying complexity that comes from New World precision balanced by an Old World soul.
