im Maresh is the first third-generation winemaker in the history of Oregon. His father and grandfather were some of the earliest pioneers of viticulture and winemaking in the state. Jim's upbringing on his family's vineyard gives him an utterly unique appreciation for the red hills of Dundee, its vineyards, the neighbors, the seasons … you might say Dundee is second nature to Jim. It also helps that he farms some of the oldest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines in the United States. Pale ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills opens with woodsmoke, crushed pink peppercorn, garrigue, dusty earth and dried leaves aromas with notes of cranberries, wild blackberries, red berries and a framing of cinnamon spice. It’s light-bodied and elegantly styled with spicy fruits, a soft frame and juicy freshness, finishing long.
