The Central Coast of California includes all the vineyard land between San Francisco and Los Angeles. That means a huge array of different growing conditions, from the forested peaks of the Santa Cruz Mountains in the north to the rolling coastal hills of Santa Barbara in the South. Marquis is proud to offer you exclusive access to a number of leading wineries from the Central Coast, such as Mount Eden and Ojai.

Mount Eden 2016 Estate Pinot Noir 750ml

$108.61

The 2015 Pinot Noir has softened nicely since I last tasted it, although the aromatics remain a bit reticent, most likely because of the 35% whole clusters used that year. There is lovely richness and depth underneath, but readers will have to cellar the...

Grapefruit rind, yogurt, sour cream and warm pear show on the nose of this bottling. There is great acidity on the sip, with a mango cream and tropical fruit touch, but those elements coalesce into a rich, roasted-almond-driven palate as the wine...
