This is Oregon Pinot noir
Dear Oregon wine fans,
Since I sat down with Jim Maresh Friday afternoon, I've been thinking about all the facets that make the 2014 Maresh Vineyard Pinot so exceptional, things ranging from mundane to esoteric. I've decided there's really just one factor that counts: this, this is Oregon Pinot noir.
The elegance of old vines, the purity of fruit unobstructed by make-up or technique. This
is why Oregon Pinot continues to inspire me.

Soaring, mesmerizing aromas that transport you to the sun-baked Red Hills of Dundee. The Holy Grail of grace and generosity, where you can have succulent fruit, floating on silk, intertwined with vibrant freshness. True harmony exists through a melding of fruit, spice, floral tones, and that ethereal, indescribable sweetness of Pinot noir that is a hallmark of Arterberry Maresh wines.
Very few Oregon Pinot noirs can boast the vine age of Maresh Vineyard; it is the fifth oldest vineyard in the Willamette Valley and in the hands of Jim Maresh, it is the real deal.
Since it was bottled recently, I recommend holding 4-6 months before trying your first bottle; it will drink beautifully between then and 2026.

Wines like this don't often get made, especially in tremendous vintages like 2014. It's so tempting to keep all the juice in the higher-priced single vineyard bottling, but Jim Maresh's Dundee Hills is the ultimate gateway wine. Experience the Arterberry Maresh style for a bargain. It over delivers on fruit and complexity. You ask yourself, maybe I should try that Maresh Vineyard...

Expansive richness marries linear precision, forming this beautiful partnership. Meyer lemon custard, ginger, a mouthwatering salinity, finishing with hazelnut and granny smith apple through the long, vibrant finish. This has taken a few months to settle into itself and now that it has, it is simply stellar.

Gorgeous, old vine, single vineyard Dundee Hills Pinot noir. Even with Jim Maresh's elegant house style, this has lusciousness to spare. Silky, with effusive black cherry and black raspberry providing the focal point of flavor, accented by floral and sweet earth nuances. Drink it now for its deliciousness or hold it 5-7 years.
