Bearing the hallmarks of a lengthy ripening period bestowed by coastal influences, the 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.

Vintage Notes: 

The 2013 vintage offered a variety of conditions. A rather dry January gave way to normal winter rainfall. As warmer weather arrived, bud break occurred in early April. Following a moderate summer, the first week of September brought very warm weather, along with a corresponding rise in sugar and malic acid levels. We picked our fruit as quickly as possible. Our 2013 wines display appealing texture and suppleness due to marginally higher pH levels.

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.
