2012 Magnum Monument Tree Pinot Noir

Bearing the hallmarks of a lengthy ripening period bestowed by coastal influences, the 2012 Monument Tree delivers deep, developed and concentrated fruit. Like the commanding, solitary redwood that towers above the vineyard, this Pinot Noir is both singular and stunning with a round, silky palate and a long, lingering finish.

VINEYARD NOTES:
Named for a landmark redwood tree, the Monument Tree vineyard is planted with an eastern sloping exposure, avoiding the late afternoon sun. The wine is a blend of clones 115, 777, 667 and 114 and soils are comprised of decomposed sandstone and loam that are starkly expressed in the spicy fruit they yield.

VINTAGE NOTES:
The 2012 vintage was a welcome relief following the challenges of 2010 and 2011. A wet winter was balanced by a moderate, slightly dry spring, with bud break and veraison occurring several weeks later than usual. Bestowing optimal conditions for slow, even ripening, a long Indian summer extended into early October. Harvest commenced approximately two weeks later than previous years, and was condensed into a few short weeks, with all of our fruit in by November 1.
