4.4 Vivino Stars (75+ Reviews)
Marinus is one of California’s most powerful and age worthy Bordeaux blends and can impress even at 20 years of age. But getting some is not as easy as it looks – this coveted bottle is a major cult abroad. The secret is in the winemaking, which borrows heavily from Bordeaux’s playbook, going to comically extreme lengths to preserve quality in the vineyard, cellar and bottle, giving Marinus an inordinately lengthy aging curve.
Vinous 93 Points
“Opaque ruby. Highly expressive aromas of ripe cherry, red and black currant, candied flowers and pipe tobacco, along with vanilla and oak spice nuances. Sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering concentrated cassis, cherry-vanilla and licorice flavors that show no rough edges. Closes very long and spicy, with a hint of smokiness and rounded, even tannins that add gentle grip.”
