Russian River Valley
In its ninth year (and sixth vintage) we find the vineyard offering fruit from all eight blocks planted, with a resulting step up stylistically, offering a richer, more complex wine worthy of contemplation. The character of Mardikian is still being revealed as the insights we gain from spending more time farming this treasured vineyard leads to all that Jim Pratt and I hoped when we first dusted our boots with these soils.
On this vintage, aromas of ripe
black cherries and clove are complemented by flavors of dark berries and notes of forest floor. Silky, elegant tannins work in tandem with the layered flavors and hints of smoke as a subtle acidity provides a beautiful lift to complete the wine.”- Matt Courtney, Consulting Winemaker
On this vintage, delicate aromas of perfumed rose petal and black cherry lift from the glass and are met with hints of smoky oak. There is energy and tension on the palate as black fruits and notes of grilled meats envelop well-structured and elegant tannins. In tandem, elements of Bing cherry and bergamot deliver a subtle acidity that provides the backbone to complete the wine.”- Matt Courtney, Consulting Winemaker
~ 93+ Points / “Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Mardikian Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir displays earth-inspired notions of truffles, damp soil and forest floor with a core of black cherries, cinnamon, cloves and pomegranate plus a waft of potpourri. Full-bodied, rich and quite spicy in the mouth, it has a solid frame of velvety tannins and seamless freshness with a very long finish of exotic spice.” – Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, June 2018
In its seventh year (and fourth vintage) we find the vineyard offering fruit from all eight blocks planted. Mardikian Estate is the perfect example of my deliberate approach to oak in the wine – here is a wine that is deep, concentrated and surrounded by pronounced acid that provides structure and backbone. There is energy and tension, ripe fruit and elegant tannins supported by smoky undertones.
~ 95 Points / “This marks the debut of consulting winemaker Matthew Courtney’s take on the estate site. It dazzles in complex notes of exotic Asian spice, lavender and crushed rock, while focused acidity provides a context of substance and depth.” – Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, December 2017
The third release of our only Estate vineyard realizes the dream of having eight stellar Pinot Clones in the wine, the first time this has happened. Mardikian is a thinking person’s wine, contemplative if you will, rich and opulent and not prone to showing off. This is the true Sonoma Coast, just five miles from the Pacific Ocean, and the maritime influences show. The salty air descends each day on the vineyard, leaving a distinctive and easily recognizable signature. Aromas of Asian Five Spice leave an exotic impression, followed by dark raspberry and plum and tasty down under style black licorice. The vineyard is only in its sixth leaf, so each new vintage offering is truly something special, an evolving tale that is wonderful to explore and experience.
~ 93 Points, “Outstanding” / “Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Heavenly scents of raspberry, black cherry and dried herbs lead off. Sleek, refined and polished in the mouth, with both weight of flavor and weightlessness. Savory spices and herbs complement the red cherry and berry essence. Not the biggest hunk, but very seductive.” – Rusty Gaffney, PinotFile
~ 91 Points, “Very Highly Recommended” / “Medium-light to medium ruby; attractive, fragrant, spicy, cherry fruit aroma with hints of Asian spices; medium to medium-full body; fleshy, elegant, red fruit flavors with some plushness in the mouthfeel; medium tannin; lingering aftertaste. Very enjoyable now, though best to age for a few more years.” – Nicholas Ponomareff, California Grapevine
“Day One: Quiet, undemonstrative, a wine in its shell. Seemingly little fruit or extract, no earth nor herbs. The grape is hiding while the barrel sings a solo. Day Two: Expressive and floral, redolent of purple flowers, almost lavender, rose hips and beach rose, wild roses. The body now offers a coffee savoriness, a darkness with a fetching acid-bitter etch. The fruit is like cranberries steeped in black coffee, and the tingly acidity is enlivening, profound. Ergo: Give it air now, or lay it down for a few years.” – Meg Houston Maker, Maker’s Table
92 points / “From a vineyard near Freestone on the Sonoma Coast and produced from fruit that was entirely destemmed, the 2014 Pinot Noir Pratt Vineyard has a pale to medium ruby-purple color and lovely notes of crushed cherries and raspberry leaves on the nose with lavender, wild thyme and damp earth in the background. Elegantly fruited with tons of freshness and a nice firm, grainy backbone, it concludes with a persistent earthy/mineral-laced finish. 103 cases were made.” – Robert Parker
Our first bottling from Mardikian Estate was was the 2012 vintage and it sold out quickly. This second edition is already a decided step up in style and complexity, now featuring six of the eight clones planted at the estate.
How can a wine this young show such maturity and distinctive class? Aromas and flavors of wild berry and plum join raspberry and black Aussie style licorice, plush and silky on the palate. Join us in this journey, won’t you?
~ 92 Points “Outstanding” / “Moderately light cherry red color in the glass. Lovely aromas of cherry pie glaze, Asian 5-spice and a compliment of oak. Flavorful on the attack and soft and smooth on the mid palate, with a juicy core of cherry fruit. More polished and elegant in the vintage, with less color and fruit intensity, finishing with polish. A velvet hammer of flavor.” – Rusty Gaffney, PinotFile
~ 90 Points “Outstanding” / “The outstanding 2013 Pinot Noir Mardikian Estate Vineyard is dark ruby/purple, shows forest floor, black cherry and blackcurrant notes, spice, medium to full body, excellent purity and richness. It’s an impressive wine – 100% from the Sonoma Coast. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
~ 93 Points “Outstanding” / Silky texture with ripe cherry and juicy, tangy acidity; elegant, fresh and bright; long, complex and showing considerable finesse. – Anthony Dias Blue, Tasting Panel Magazine
~ 90 Points “Highly Recommended” / “An estate-grown wine in its second vintage, this comes from the cooler-climate hills of the coast. This plush wine is dark brown in color and brimming in stinky earth—a rich, funky and concentrated expression that’s herbal, spicy and shy in raspberry fruit.” –Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast
