Gorgeous, old vine, single vineyard Dundee Hills Pinot from one of our favorite wineries. Even with Jim Maresh's elegant house style, this has lusciousness to spare. Silky, with effusive black cherry and black raspberry providing the focal point of flavor, accented by floral and sweet earth nuances. Drink it now for its deliciousness or hold it 5-7 years.

2010 vintage notes:

Tanzer 93 Points Light, bright red. High-pitched, mineral- and floral-accented red fruits on the nose, with a licorice nuance adding depth. Spicy, focused and pure, offering intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a refreshing kick of blood orange. Distinctly energetic and incisive on the focused, tenacious finish. - Josh Raynolds

Every vintage, Jim Maresh has a surprise up his sleeve. This year, it's his Weber Vineyard Pinot. Holy sh*t this is good! The most evolved and showy of the 2010s, this opens with an awesome array of sweet red fruit, spiced orange, cinnamon stick and anise. The flavors are expansive and velvety, delving into the spectrum of darker red fruit. Elegant power.

Weber Vineyard is a stone's throw southeast of Maresh Vineyard. They are some of the oldest vineyards in the area and were planted by Arthur and Vivian Weber in 1976, with some assistance by Martha Maresh (Jim's Mom.) Jim's Weber Pinot is 100% Pommard clone. 12.8% alcohol.

2010 Wine Advocate - 91 points - From a 1983 planting and a first for Jim Maresh, his 2010 Pinot Noir Weber Vineyard reflects in its resinous, herbal, and tartly red-fruited character an eastern exposure that gets next to no afternoon sun. Licorice, horehound, spruce, raspberry, and red currant inform an athletically lean, bright and penetratingly finishing Pinot that deserves some time before revisiting and will surely be worth following for at least a decade. (The west-facing slope as well as the plateau atop this same knoll - all once part of the Weber property - are now collectively known as Ana Vineyard, and from the less than three acre plateaued portion, planted in 1976 -with rows contracted to Patricia Green and Beaux Freres on either side - came in 2011 what will be the newest Arterberry Maresh vineyard-designate.) - David Schildknecht

Burghound 91 Points: "(Dundee Hills, vines were planted in 1983, SRP $55, 12.8%). This is also quite restrained with its aromas of cool, pure and layered red pinot fruit, sandalwood, violet, spice and lavender scents. There is absolutely a terrific sense of purity and refinement to the beautifully vibrant medium weight flavors that deliver the same outstanding focus and authority, all wrapped in a firm, long and serious finish. I very much like the style but there is excellent content as well and this should amply reward mid-term cellaring though it’s hard not to enjoy now.  91/2018+
