The 2017 Monument Tree Pinot Noir is somewhat dark and mysterious at first glance – it has a brooding nature with loads of spicy, earthy elements;  yet it still maintains the fruit-forward, red cherry charm that I’ve come to recognize from this vineyard.  Aromatically, this wine shows an interplay of sweeter notes like black plum and vanilla cream, alongside hints of forest floor, sage and black olive. The palate is broad and coating at entry, bursting with flavors of maraschino liqueur and red licorice. The tannins are firm yet elegant and bound together by a succulent mouth-watering acidity.  Ever-present is the underlying earthy spice that is so typical of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir – that quality that keeps the palate intrigued and the senses nimble.
