I don't know. I haven't used minipage-marginpar; but with either this
or a simple marginpar, try \vspace*, with positive or negative value.
Maybe a simple

\marginpar{\vspace*{-3pc}A test.}

will suffice. If there is no change, try a \par to make it work:

\marginpar{\par\vspace*{-4pc}A test.}

Best,
