Burghound 92 Points: ...a bottling to honor Maresh’s late grandmother with much of the proceeds donated to the Loie Maresh Reading Foundation at Dundee Elementary School, produced in years where there are enough for 100% shot clusters, all handpicked by Maresh himself, only 20 cases, SRP $98, 12.6%). This is also pale ruby. The expressive nose is pure, airy and ultra-refined while exhibiting notes of cherry and red pinot fruit aromas that are enveloped by a wonderful array of floral characters. There is a real sense of underlying tension that imparts energy to the beautifully well-delineated flavors that, in the same fashion as the Gehrts, are light on the palate yet deliver wonderful flavor authority and focus on the refreshing, intense and again beautifully balanced finish. This will best please those who appreciate finesse rather than power pinot but if you enjoy that style, then this is worth making a special effort to find. 92/2017+

Elegance, refinement, and subtle power - those are the hallmarks of Jim Maresh's Pinots. Complex and inviting, this is packed with dark cherries, orange oil, brown sugar-dusted strawberries and pinches of baking spice that fan out on the finish. Talk about finish(!), the extra time in barrel adds another dimension of length. - Marcus

It's a similar wine to Jim's 2009 Maresh Vineyard Pinot (one of the stars of the 2009 vintage), except that it was aged an additional 11 months in neutral barrels. Jim prefers the Powell Hill 09, citing the extra complexity and length. This aged gracefully in neutral oak for 25 months before bottling, then another year in bottle. That patience is rewarded with a wine that sings upon opening and has another 2-4 years of evolution. Only two barrels were produced.

Powell Hill Winery is run by Martha Maresh and her husband, Steven Mikami. Martha's son Jim (Arterberry Maresh) is the winemaker. The wine is a tribute to Martha's mother, Loie, and Steven's mother, Lois.
