Couloir Wines Pinot Noir Monument Vineyard 2010

Member Review by KrisChislett:

Unfined and unfiltered, the Monument Tree isn’t a shy Pinot! Deep, complex, full in style but still managing to maintain a sense of elegance. The wine jumps out of the glass with a rich mix of cherries, dried cranberry and ripe plum. It isn’t all just fruit, there is still acidity to give backbone and an extensive finish. Spice is still a fairly major component (as I have found with most of the Couloir wines), with mineral, herb, clove and a little tree bark. Probably the best Anderson Valley Pinot I have tasted.
