Description

“The 2015 Marcella's, Fess Parker's white Rhône blend, is gorgeous. Soft, open-knit and expressive, the 2015 offers striking depth, nuance and freshness. Apricot, mint, chamomile and lightly floral notes are laced into the finish. This is another delicious, flavorful yet mid-weight white from Fess Parker. The Marcella's is done in a combination of roughly equal parts steel and oak.” ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"...the 2015 Marcella's Vineyard gives pronounced notes of applesauce, peach preserves and straw with hints of allspice and toasted almond slices. Medium-bodied and finely crafted in the mouth, it has an appealing oily hint to the texture and plenty of spicy apple and stone fruit flavors, finishing with lingering white pepper hints." ~ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 

"Based on grenache blanc and viognier, this is a lush white, its scents of flint and lemon oil giving way to a warmer spiced-tangerine flavor that finishes zingy and clean, its freshness outlasting any waxiness. A summer aperitif." ~ Wine & Spirits 

"Crisp lemon meringue, peach and apricot flavors are fleshy and juicy, with spice and floral details on the finish." ~ Wine Spectator
