Surprise! New 97 Point Arterberry Maresh Pinots

It's hard for the best winemakers to surprise us. But ever since Jim Arterberry Maresh walked in the door in 2007 (with his first wine, a 2005 Maresh Chardonnay), he has surprised us more times than we can count.

Great surprises, like a brand new Pinot noir from the hallowed Maresh Vineyard. More great surprises, like the reviving of his Weber Vineyard Pinot noir. These two 2018 Arterberry Maresh Pinots are so fantastic that we aren't the least bit surprised that both received 97 points from The Wine Advocate.

We won't be surprised if they sell out quickly, so we recommend you get shopping. And don't forget to read all the way down to find an Arterberry Maresh Cellar Case filled with 2018 and 2019 Pinots.

97 points The Wine Advocate: "Super perfumed! It has layered aromas that range from crushed red berries to aniseed to lilac and forest floor, continually offering up more aromatic nuances as it spends time in the glass. The medium-bodied palate is powerfully fruited, with sweeping floral perfume, silky tannins and bright acidity that calls you in again and again for another sip. Wow!"

Us: Like the best Arterberry Maresh Pinot noirs, this is all about elegant power. 100% Maresh Vineyard in the hands of Jim Maresh is going to yield magic. Everything above is true, including the "wow."

97 points The Wine Advocate: "From Pommard clone vines planted in 1983. It features pure aromas of cranberry and black raspberry with botanical and floral layers. The palate is seamless and complex, with powerful flavors, a silky texture and bright acidity, finishing with layer after layer of sweet berry fruit."

Us: The darker fruited expression of Arterberry Maresh Pinot, with seductive aromatics and the classic seamless composition we love about Jim's Pinots. What that means: this wine and Arterberry Maresh wines in general flow harmoniously from start to finish.

An incredible collection of Arterberry Maresh's highly rated 2018 and 2019 Pinot noirs!
