2012 Knudsen Vineyard Brut Magnum (1.5L)

November 2019 Mag of the Month

Planted in 1974, The traditional backbone Pinot Noir of the Knudsen Vineyard Brut provides understated aromas of pomegranate, cherry kernel and nutmeg which opens into a creamy, lees-aged mouthfeel. While warmer than the previous two vintages, the late September picking provided ample concentration while still allowing the volcanic tension of the Dundee Hills to shine. Young and tightly wound, the red cherry and rose petal Pinot Noir character will continue to emerge with cellaring. Fermenting and aging in our oldest, neutral oak barrels allows for the middle palate to fully flesh out, while still building upon its taut, savory length and enhancing its creamy bead.
