Varietal: Pinot Noir


Maxem is a single vineyard Pinot Noir from the celebrated Ulises Valdez Vineyard using the historical Calera clone. Energetic aromas of pomegranate, wild blueberries, rhubarb, bergamot, blood orange and Earl Gray tea lead into a tension-filled palate of crunchy red berries, wet stone, river rock and dried purple flowers delivering a liquid wonderland for the senses. Harnessed by the cool climate of the terroir, the fruit’s natural acidity sits on the finish for what seems like days, all wrapped in a luscious texture that defies logic and will have your palate swooning with delight. Aged in 60% new French oak, this wine perfectly bridges the gap between seduction and sophistication, showcasing the balanced beauty that can only come from the marriage of superlative fruit and the perfect site. 100% Pinot Noir


In Latin, MAXEM has the distinction of meaning “best of the best.” It also combines the names of the owner’s two children, Max and Emma. With the iconic Ulises Valdez Vineyard as their source on the Sonoma Coast, Sam and Nancy Kaplan make Pinot Noir from the historical Calera clone and Chardonnay from the equally acclaimed Wente clone. Sam is a highly regarded winemaker; Nancy a professional chef with her laser palate, has an equal say. MAXEM wines represent some of the most exciting wines produced in California today and have received rave reviews from the wine industry's top journalists.


Sam has been making noteworthy and collectible Cabernets for his clients, Arkenstone on Howell Mountain, Nine Suns on Pritchard Hill, and Memento Mori in Napa with the help from renowned grape grower Andy Beckstoffer, all of which are ultra-premium brands made with meticulous care from pristinely farmed vineyards.
