2017 Arterberry Maresh "Old Vine" Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1419758 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Glistening scarlet. A highly complex bouquet evokes red berry and cherry preserves, along with building Asian spice, rose oil and smoky mineral flourishes. Shows fine delineation and seamless texture, offering concentrated, spice-tinged Chambord, cherry, cola and spicecake flavors that pick up a strong rose pastille nuance with air. Finishes extremely long and pure, with fine-grained tannins providing framework and gentle grip to lingering red fruit, five-spice powder and savory herb notes. 70% of this fruit comes from the estate Maresh vineyard and the other 30% is from the neighboring Weber vineyard; the vast majority of the vines were planted in the late 1970s.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Pale to medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Old Vines has classic scents of cranberry sauce, wild blackberries, woodsmoke and cola with accents of tea leaves, amaro, tar and graphite. It's refined and delicate in the mouth, medium-bodied, spicy and fresh with a long, nuanced finish. Lovely! (EB) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

Arterberry Maresh is a staff favorite at K&L. I'm pretty sure the staff are buying and drinking as much of it as our customers! Folks looking for classically styled, pure, unadulterated Oregon Pinot Noir need look no further. Arterberry's "Old Vine" bottling comes predominantly from their eponymous estate, Maresh Vineyard, but also has a small percentage of fruit from the neighboring Weber Vineyard. Both vineyards were planted more 45 years ago and are dry-farmed. Intoxicating aromas and flavors of deep red berries mingling with rose petal, forest floor, spice box, sandalwood and nutmeg. Medium bodied, lithe and fresh, the tannin structure is refined and plenty pliable enough to drink right now or for many years to come.

This is a beautiful and classic Pinot Noir. It is light bodied but full of flavor. It is delicate with hints of spice flavors. There is a long finish.

Arterberry Maresh has been one of my go-to names for refined, complex, and flat-out delicious Pinot. Their 2017 “Old Vines” is another remarkable wine, the kind that could be easily mistaken for high-end Burgundy but still carries a stunningly accessible price tag. It is hard not to notice its beautiful transparent ruby color. With notes of cinnamon, thyme, and tart red fruit on the gorgeous aromatics, the palate follows through with crisp cherry, cola, five spice, and fine grain tannins. There is great extract and structure, but the wine is weightless. The finish builds long after the wine is gone. Drink now after a long decant or keep for another decade. It is a remarkable feat of strength to see a wine this generous and dynamic that clocks in at under 13%. This will thrill the modern and traditional camp for Pinot, one of the few that deftly strikes such a delicate balance.
