Founded in 2007, very nice small production Pinot, 662 cases. The ‘17 has grapes from all six blocks at Maresh, had another bottle, last tasted 10 months ago. Very Light Ruby (lightest Pinot I ever had), floral and fruit aromas, very light almost crisp. On the palate flavors of bing cherry and fresh strawberry with elegant spice. Fine tannins, long ending with fruit, refined spice and mineral notes. Great drinking now, will run few years and bring out more complexity. Nice!

Pale ruby, bright acidity, black tea, earthy, with orange peel, black cherry, strawberry, forest floor. Medium bodied, still a bit tight on the palate. Give it a year or two.

Fresh strawberries, cherry pastille, bitter rhubarb, floral tones, might gain complexity but very nice now

Founded in 2007, very nice small production Pinot, 662 cases. The ‘17 has grapes from all six blocks at Maresh. Light Ruby, floral and fruit aromas, very light almost crisp. On the palate youthful flavors of cherry and fresh strawberry with elegant spice. Fine tannins, lingering ending with fruit and tangy spice and mineral notes. Great now but a few years will bring out more of the wines complexity.

Dark ruby with moderate concentration. Wild herbs, orange peel, tart cherry and some unexpected green pepper. Zero oak. Medium bodied. Quite restraint...

Pale, translucent / ripe raspberry, rose petal / super delicate, subtle, thoughtful, restrained / some spices slide in on the finish, elevated by minerality / lucid and haunting

The nose was intense with dark red fruits offset by saline-minerals, wild herbs and crushed stone. On the palate, I found tart red berry mixed with zesty acidity and textures and a mineral core. Again savory over sweet.

Gorgeous dark fruit and mineral nose. Silky and almost savory on the palate with its rich fruit offset by saline minerality.

Pretty color. Almost a medium -light hue of glowing crimson. Nose of crushed bright red berries, sassafras and orange zest. Palate shows a nicely bright red fruit profile with tons of verve. A crunchy and polished mouthfeel with red strawberries, red raspberries and spring flowers. It's super fragrant and very gorgeous. I am so loving the orange peel/sweet tart/violet thingy running straight through it. Wow. Tannins are elegant and finely meshed and acidity spot-on and bouncy. A mid-palate creaminess that only a Cab guy can appreciate. Balanced, elegant, vibrant and just awesome. What the hell is not to love?

Candy Apple coating followed by ripe cherries. Very fresh shovel turned earth. Very good effort
