2011 Arterberry Maresh "Juliard" Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1267129 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Intense and seductively bittersweet floral perfume as well as an unusually firm structure and invigorating sense of grip to Maresh’s 2011 Pinot Noir Juliard Vineyard all point toward his inclusion -- for the first time in an Arterberry Maresh wine -- of stems... 'If there’s a vineyard to test out stems on,' says Maresh, --I thought: Juliard ' savory, meaty, rugged.'' Well, this wine is at least two of those things, yet at the same time preserves the buoyancy, vibrant brightness and outright refreshment potential inherent in 2011. The combination of palpable density with levity, fluidity, and energy is quite remarkable. Juicy fresh cherry and red currant inflected by cinnamon and their piquant pits and crunchy seeds are mingled with salted veal stock and meat juices that serve for saliva-inducement, leading to a subtly chewy and invigoratingly, crunchily incisive finish. As this stands open for an hour it takes on a more polished texture while losing none of its dynamic appeal. Expect excitement through at least 2025. 'You know what,' Maresh exclaims, 'Juliard might be the best vineyard in the whole ----ing Dundee Hills, and I believe in its full potential.' (DS) Inner quote mark (10/2013)

Outer quote mark Light, bright red. Intense redcurrant and raspberry aromas show impressive precision and gain weight with air, picking up notes of Asian spices, blood orange and smoky minerals. Brisk, sharply focused red berry flavors stain the palate, showing excellent purity and lift. Floral pastille, cinnamon and star anise flavors dominate the long, nervy finish, which is framed by harmonious silky tannins. (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2014)
