Description Build A Case!
Maru, meaning “Do As You Dream”, originates from the land’s first inhabitants, the Pomo Indians. This wine captures the essence of the true Sonoma Coast with its complex aromatics, weightless elegance and lingering finish. This wine is comprised mainly from Hellenthal Vineyard, which lies 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean just above the fog line at 1,200 feet elevation. Its extreme growing conditions and very low yields allow for the extraordinary development of Pinot Noir.

The 2013 harvest can be summed up in one word, outstanding. The growing season got off to an early start with a nice, warm, dry spring that allowed for healthy, early season vine growth and abundant fruit set. Ideal growing conditions continued through the warm summer, resulting in uniform ripening and healthy crop sizes that were thinned to achieve vine balance.

Near-perfect harvest conditions, with no heat spikes, enabled our growers to pick each vineyard and block when the fruit reached peak maturity. The result was a stellar vintage defined by clean, outstanding fruit with balanced acidity, tannins and sugar levels. In fact, 2013 joins with the highly praised 2012 growing season to form what is widely considered the two best consecutive growing seasons in over twenty years.

TASTING NOTES: Deep ruby red, with notes of dried flowers, Asian spice and menthol on the nose, Maru features black cherry and pomegranate fruit along with a multi-layered mouthfeel of great intensity, precision and weightless elegance. The floral note and minerality return on the finish with silky tannins and a lingering spiciness. Already showing considerable complexity, this classic Burgundian style wine should age effortlessly for a decade or more.
