The 2010 Baptista Maresh Vineyard Pinot Noir

A captivating, intense Pinot with velvet edges.  Deep scarlet red in color.  The nose fills the glass - you'll think you've tasted the wine even before the first sip. The flavors express a predominance of black cherry; sensual and delicate despite its fruit.  With a small fruit set in this vintage, it is a balanced and true "pinot style" wine.  The wine opens up to earthy undertones that suggest it will only improve as it matures.  In the words of Jim Maresh, "This is a great wine; a classic Maresh Pinot!"

The 2009 Baptista Maresh Vineyard Pinot Noir

A jewel of a wine; clear and ruby red.  In the mouth, silky cherry and blackberry.  Haunting taste of the earth; clean, fertile and full of minerals.  A wonderful food wine - it's hard to put your glass down!  Our first wine made by Jay Somers, this vintage proves why Pinot Noir is the "Queen of Wines."  The finish is amazing, and soft tannins will reward cellaring.

The 2008 Baptista Maresh Vineyard Pinot Noir

The result of a bountiful harvest in only their second year of fruit, this wine opens with intense aromas of succulent black cherry and cocoa, and a reminder of the Jory soil.  In the mouth, the palate is velvety smooth and heady, showing deep berry and honey notes, layered with hints of tart cherry and toasted oak.  This wine seems to grow in concentration after the first sip...  the flavors echo in the mouth long after holding the glass up to enjoy its classic Pinot depth of color.  This is an impressive young wine, eminently satisfying now, that shows loads of potential and will reward those with the patience to let it rest for another five years or more.   As with our 2007 Pinot Noir, it is best paired with salmon, steaks or dark chocolate in the company of your loved one.

The 2007 Baptista Maresh Vineyard Pinot Noir

...is one of elegance and nuance; exactly what a Dundee Hills Pinot should be. Harvested the day before the near-epic rains of that fall, this Pinot is richer in mouth feel than many '07's from the Hills. It is the inaugural harvest of the Pommard clone in their third leaf, when the vines make their best "first impression." Deep garnet in color, this beauty has an intoxicating nose with notes of lilac and the terroir. On the palate, classic Maresh blackberry and spice dominate, with a hint of rose petal. Graceful and well-balanced, the wine grows in the glass, finishes long, and lingers. This '07 has light acidity, making it a natural match with salmon and steaks. Drinking wonderfully now, it will continue to develop for the next decade. Those looking for a heavier, "fruit punch" Pinot should look elsewhere; this is a gorgeous wine that will reward either the Pinot aficionado or the novice willing to take the next step.
