Dense purple hue with alluring aromas of blue/blackberry, cherry, plum and notes of bay laurel, graphite, and sandalwood. A well balanced wine with a round, silky mid-palate that finishes with a core of firm tannin. Delicious now and for the foreseeable future. RSV’s organically and Biodynamically grown “Right Bank” of Napa wine might as well be from Mars... an elegant alien amongst over-the-top natives. Maybe it’s best described as the bridge between Old and New Worlds; a Saint-Émilion with a suntan!
Marcien is blended purely by taste and texture to create the most expressive wine from a given year. Marcien is RSV’s best effort from the vintage and the vineyards.
