This wine is made with the best block of fruit from the oldest section of Maresh vineyard. It is consistently one of Oregon's top pinot noir bottlings. While production of this wine was more than 1,000 cases in each of the 2014 and 2015 vintages, production in the classic 2016 vintage was just about 310 cases -- this is limited, and in extreme demand.
From Parker: "This wine comes from Pinot Noir vines planted in the early 1970s. Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Maresh Vineyard is scented of lilac, violet, pure strawberry jam, rhubarb and cranberry sauce with layers of warm earth, red and black licorice and exotic spice. Medium to full-bodied, it floods the mouth with warm red cherries, strawberry and rhubarb jam notions and wonderful accents of dried violets, earth, licorice and spice. It has very, very fine, grainy tannins and juicy mouthwatering acidity, finishing epically long with spiced warm red fruits. This just sings!"
