2011 Arterberry Maresh "Maresh Vineyard" Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1144721 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Arterberry Maresh 2011 Pinot Noir Maresh Vineyard pours forth an ethereally high-toned combination of red berry distillates, fresh berry scents, and nut extracts such as I associate with Pinots from this site and some of its Worden Hill Road neighbors, and found also in the extraordinary 2005 that Maresh’s father Jim Arterberry crafted from these vines, which I tasted nearly alongside. (See my note in this report). Ginseng tea and bittersweetly perfumed iris waft across generously juicy cherry and red currant, while mineral salts, meat broth, mushroom stock and crustacean shell reduction all open the doors to umami and liberate the salivary glands in an incandescent and ravishingly rejuvenating finish. Also reminiscent in this 2011 of a perfectly resolved, mature wine is the silken-smooth palate texture, along with an almost airy sense of levity and elegance, yet all the while allied though to penetrating fruit and mineral intensity. I can’t imagine it proving less than amazing through at least 2027. Happily, there are around 350 cases, as opposed to the mere 250 there were of 2010. (DS) Inner quote mark (10/2013)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Vivid red. Suave, spice-accented redcurrant and cherry aromas are complicated by floral and musky earth accents. Silky and refreshingly brisk, offering bitter cherry and red berry flavors that gain flesh and spiciness with air. Distinctly elegant in style, with a sweet, seamless, persistent finish framed by fine-grained tannins. (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2014)
