Better Late Than Never: New 94 for Arterberry Maresh

We're pretty sure your first experience with "wine" was similar to ours, something more like Barltes & Jaymes versus beautiful Dundee Hills Pinot noir. The point: our sophisticated tastes usually require a little time.

The same can be said for major wine publications. It took Wine Spectator a decade to discover its taste for Arterberry Maresh and now that it has, we're all on the same sophisticated page. Years after the official release, Jim Maresh sent his 2015 Maresh Vineyard Pinot noir to Wine Spectator and boom, a new 94 for his perfectly cellared 2015. Better late than never. We've tasted it a bunch of times recently and it's in the zone, perfect timing for special holiday feasts!

$53.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($59.95 regular)

94 points Wine Spectator: "Refined and sensuous, with floral cherry and raspberry flavors, accented by black tea and dusky spice notes that build tension and structure on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2026."

Also 95 points Wine Advocate, 94 points Vinous, 94 points get the picture.
