The Legacy Reborn

Sharing the Vision

“Wine is a reflection of who we are,
of the things we love.”

Marciano Estate is both the culmination and creation of a dream. Our wines -- derived from nature, driven by site and wrought by human hand -- embody the passion, patience and perseverance it takes to create a thing of beauty. These are wines to be shared, with those who enjoy it as much as we do.

2015

Vintage

Another remarkable year in a string of excellent drought vintages in Napa Valley, the 2015 vintage experienced lighter than usual winter rainfalls. The relatively warm winter lead to one of the earliest bud break and bloom in almost 15 years. A cool spring and warm dry summer created a perfectly balanced crop, resulting in small berries with excellent density, purity and depth of flavors. The esteemed winemaking team of Morgan Maureze, Andy Erickson and Michel Rolland collaborated on our best vintage yet.

Marciano Estate

A Singular Expression of Site

Marciano Estate represents, quite simply, the best wine that we produce each vintage. It took us years to get here. Years of experimenting, getting to know the land, the geology, the soils. Of letting the vineyard mature and understanding the vines and through them, how the site expresses itself. Produced in quantities dictated solely by quality, Marciano Estate represents years of striving for what can only be called a beautiful expression of a singular vineyard.

Cabernet Sauvignon

2015

In 2015 the small block of iron-rich soils that form the core of the Marciano Estate Cabernet Sauvignon produced a wine that is rich and lush with beautiful texture, concentration and complex flavors of cassis and blackberry layered with black plum and mocha. Hints of star anise and sarsaparilla complement the silky ripe tannins and long, graceful finish.

This vintage is already showing its decadent flavors and can be enjoyed in its youth with a time in a decanter. Those with the patience to cellar their wine will be rewarded, as the 2015 Marciano Estate Cabernet Sauvignon will age gracefully for decades to come. M
