Arterberry Maresh Dundee Hills Pinot noir 2019

94 points Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills is ethereal and perfumed this vintage. It offers pure scents of raspberry preserves, bergamot, tangerine and Angostura with wafts of sweet balsamic. The palate is soft, bright and super silky, with layer after layer of sweet fruit, spice and citrus, and it finishes long and perfumed."

High tones of strawberry, currant, pomegranate, soy sauce and white pepper. Likes a few minutes in the glass to get silky and integrate. Bright, crisp and pure. Red fruits that lean more toward savory than to sweet fruit. Fine tannins, very classic Dundee Hills structure.

2018 vintage notes

The best Dundee Hills bottling Jim has done in years. In fact, we were comparing notes and both of us think it's the best Dundee Hills Pinot since 2008. A couple more sips and I'm ready to proclaim it as the best Arterberry Maresh Dundee Hills Pinot of all time! It has the fruit intensity and substance of a warmer vintage plus the purity and elegance of a cooler vintage. In Goldilocks terms, this is just right. I've had it open three days and it is drinking absolutely perfectly right nowI'm not ashamed to say that I'm drinking a glass of it right now as I'm writing this and when I'm done, I'll pour myself another! 

It spent a full 18 months in barrel because Jim felt like it needed it. Whether or not it did, it's impossible to taste it without noticing the extended aging having worked its magic in the texture, the feel of it.

The 2018 sports serious old vine pedigree: 55% Maresh, 25% Dux, 20% Anderson Family vineyards. - Marcus 

2017 vintage notes

Utterly crushable. Fresh strawberry and cherry aromas and flavors are everywhere, and impossible to resist (hence, the crushable part). The first bottle I opened at the house was gone in 15 minutes...and there were only three of us! It's that kind of juice, similar to the Old Vines, that's pure, fresh, silky, sexy -- why we seek Pinot noir. - Marcus

2016 vintage notes

93 points Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills has a lovely open nose of warm cinnamon stick, cranberry and baked red cherry pie with black tea leaf and potpourri spice. Light to medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with warm red fruit and layers of baking spice, earth and mineral—dried leaves, oolong tea, warm earth—with a good frame of fine-grained tannins and plenty of juicy acidity, finishing long and spicy."


2014 vintage notes

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. 

90 points Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills is a blend of Maresh, Juliard, Weber, Gehrts and Folie Hill vineyards. It has a fresh and vibrant bouquet with red cherry and wild strawberry fruit, touches of blood orange with fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin - a mixture here of red and black fruit, meaty in style with a Pommard-like finish that lingers in the mouth. For $25, it's probably the bargain of the vintage."

2013 vintage notes

Jim Maresh's loss is your gain. He declassified ALL but 7 barrels of Maresh Vineyard, for its own bottling. Everything else he liked went into Dundee Hills. Free-run juice from coveted old vine sites: Maresh, Juliard, Weber, and Winderlea, alongside Gehrts and Foley Hill. 

At first I thought, "this is better than the 2012." And then I retasted it and said, "this is better than the 2012!" Yet another fantastic bargain from Jim Maresh. - Marcus

2012 vintage notes: an incredible bargain. A beautiful fan of aromas - red fruit, cinnamon, dried flowers, minerals, white pepper and a pinch of brown sugar that reappears towards the finish. Cherry, red currant and fleshy strawberry make for a juicy, slightly spicy array of flavors that engage you with Pinot noir magic. Incredible vineyard sources including Maresh, Juliard, Winderlea, Weber, and Gehrts that spent 22 months in barrel and developed a super silkiness. I saw it put on weight after only a few hours open - I expect it will do the same in a cool cellar over the next 2-4 years. - Marcus
