In this vintage, Kelley Fox produced three different Pinots sourced from the Maresh Vineyard. This one is graceful and elegant, showing both old vine gravitas and delicate sensibility. It leads with a complex, smooth and penetrating mix of strawberry, raspberry and cherry flavors and follows with grapefruit, orange peel and cumin hints, which round out its lovely tannins. It even drinks beautifully two days after being opened and should age well.
