2004 Marcassin Zio Tony Chardonnay
In Stock: 1
 
The 2004 Chardonnay Zio Tony Ranch, which I tasted last year, seems to have barely moved after 12 months of aging. A beautiful effort from the Goldridge soils of the Russian River, it exhibits a lovely floral component intermixed with notions of nectarines, orange marmalade, white currants, and underlying minerality. Superb acidity gives youthfulness and vibrancy as well as delineation to all of the wine’s component parts. This full-bodied, beautiful Chardonnay should age for a decade or more. Tasting at Marcassin with Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer is one of the more satisfying appointments a wine critic could have. This is commitment to excellence at its highest level. An unwavering, uncompromising brilliance and focus is reflected in not only meticulous work in the vineyard, but also in highly detailed winemaking that consistently succeeds in producing some of the finest Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs in the world. Even more interesting, since they have rarely given interviews, will be the two books that Turley and Wetlaufer are writing independently of each other. They possess an accumulation of knowledge and experience that is, as the advertising industry would say, “priceless.” Hopefully some of that will soon make its way onto the written pages for future generations.
