2017 Arterberry Maresh Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1393624

Jim Maresh is the first third-generation winemaker in the history of Oregon. His father and grandfather were some of the earliest pioneers of viticulture and winemaking in the state. Jim's upbringing on his family's vineyard gives him an utterly unique appreciation for the red hills of Dundee, its vineyards, the neighbors, the seasons... you might say Dundee is second nature to Jim. It also helps that he farms some of the oldest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines in the United States. That's why it's no surprise that he makes some of the most sought-after wines in the AVA, year in and year out. These are small-production beauties, and typically only the AVA designate wine makes it into retail. The single-vineyard bottlings are almost always sold out through the mailing list, so the opportunity to acquire any of Jim's wines is one that should not be missed.

It's always fun to find a domestic Pino Noir that’s a little different from the rest. The 2017 Arterberry Maresh is more Burgundian than anything else with its low Alcohol content(12.5%), high acid and earthy/savory profile. The 2017 is almost pale in color but delivers a mouthful of flavor that lingers on the pallet. If Karen Macneil were writing this review she might use the word ethereal describe this wine. The grapes are grown on red and rich volcanic Jory Soil commonly found in the Dundee Hills AVA. This unique element of terroir is expressed beautifully in Arterberry Maresh’s 2017 Pino. I highly recommend trying this Oregon gem.

Additional Information:


Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- Highly touted for its Pinot Noirs, Oregon is part of the up-and-coming winemaking industry in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Most of Oregon is directly affected by the climate coming off of the Pacific Ocean, giving it mild winters and wet summers. This makes it a difficult place to ripen grapes, but some say that the harder grapes have to struggle, the more complex they will turn out to be. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are two important and successful grapes grown in Oregon.
