    Winemaker's Notes:

    2008 is one of Marimar Estate's greatest vintages and this barrel selection of Cristina packs a myriad aromas of rasberry, rose petal, cinnamon, clove and a trave of orange peel. The palate is full-flavored, intense and mouthwatering, with hints of moka and spice from the elegant, toasty oak. The supple tannins make it a delightful wine to drink right now, but it will age well for at least another 20 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The winery held this back an additional six months after their other 2008 Pinots were released, presumably to let it become integrated. Still, it's quite tannic, with a sandpaper-like toughness. Despite the astringency, the massive wild-cherry, cola, mushroom and anise flavors come through. It's a huge wine, feral and untamed—quite exquisite in its wildness.

    Deep red. Smoke- and herb-accented aromas of cherry-cola and dark berries, with a peppery note adding vibrancy. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering dense black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of candied rose. The smoky note comes back on the very persistent finish, which features supple tannins and a sexy floral quality. Nothing shy about this one.
