2012 Twomey Cellars Monument Tree Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., 142 cases, $68. The first single vineyard wine from this estate vineyard. For years, this vineyard has been the backbone for the Anderson Valley bottling. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of strawberry, cherry, spice box and smoky oak become more effusive over time. Juicy flavors of black cherry and ripe strawberry with a hint of spice are easy to like. Appealing finesse and harmony, with fine tannins, refreshing acidity and a bright finish. Score: 91. Reviewed January 23, 2015
