2012 Meyer Vineyard Pinot noir Magnum
The Meyer Vineyard's steepest and most exposed blocks create very ripe Pinot noir with deeply colored, often dense and multilayered wines, while the more sheltered, gentler slopes yield more subtle, mineral red-fruited wines. Our preferences often depend on the vintage. The 2012 Meyer combines fruit from multiple aspects of the vineyard to make a balanced, admittedly opulent wine. The fragrant nose reveals blueberry and kirsch accented by anise, smoke, sandalwood and earth. The palate is bright and fresh with focused, lithe red fruit driving to the finish, highlighted by darker fruit notes.
