We've long been in love with the Pinot Noirs from Kelley Fox, and this is one of the best we've ever tasted! Its spectacularly complex and impossible to define, so we'll let Kelley explain it to you herself:

"I couldn’t be happier to announce this new, single block bottling of Maresh! When I was the winemaker at Scott Paul Wines (2005-harvest 2014), I spent a lot of time in this block doing the biodynamic sprays and fruit-thinning. It consistently went into the finest bottling at Scott Paul. This block is next to the Star, but the rows are much longer and are bordered on the east by a large stand of Royal Ann cherry trees over a century old. Many springs ago, I was stunned by the sight of the double-blossomed, white cherry blossoms falling slowly to the ground from a breeze while white cabbage butterflies moved through them. That kind of beauty is there.  he Royal Ann 2018 is a medium to dark-medium, red with some blue tones and lovely transparency that is also somehow opulent. True to the classic Maresh character, though, the nose and mouth are filled with sun-warmed strawberries, but with subtle spices. This wine is a queen. The length is very long and silky, and overall, there is a richness that is both noble and crackling with energy."
