The Maresh family farms Pommard and Wädenswil Pinot Noir from
1970, 1974 plantings and own-rooted Chardonnay from 1974 and 1983
plantings. Ranging from 500’ to 800’ elevation, these high
elevation vines experience a long hang-time and are the last to
ripen. The vineyard is managed by Jim Maresh Sr., Martha Maresh,
and Steve Mikami.
Maresh Vineyard is Jim’s reference point for Dundee Hills Pinot
Noir. It is the most complex and layered Pinot Noir. It tends
towards pure flavors of concentrated red berries, black tea,
sandalwood, floral tones, stony spice, and berry bramble. The
silken tannins and long, intricate mouth feel speak to the truly
elegant profile of this wine, which always benefits from ample air
The Chardonnay from Maresh Vineyard is full, bright and complex
with aromatics and flavors of fresh lemon curd, ginger spice,
mineral richness of wet stones and honeycomb. This is a long
evolving wine full of tension.
- Winery Notes
Tanzer's Int'l Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 2013, 93
"Bright, hazy red. A sexy,
complex bouquet offers up scents of fresh red berries, incense,
potpourri and star anise. Lively, sharply focused and pure,
with sappy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and suave spicecake
and rose pastille accents. Silky tannins come on late and add
grip to a long, sweet and penetrating finish. I'd have
guessed that this elegant pinot was a 2010 and not a wine from a
warm Willamette vintage like '09." --Josh Raynolds
