    Winemaker Notes

    The 2012 flagship Pinot Noir is made from Dijon clones115(73%), 777(18%), and 113(9%). We had an optimalgrowing season and yields were around 3 tons/acre. Harvestbegan on September 15th and finished October 1st. All fruitwas hand sorted and whole-berry destemmed into open-topfermenters for a 14-18 day fermentation. The wine was aged inFrench oak (33% new) sur lie for 10 months before beingbottled unfined and unfiltered.

    Beautiful dark ruby in color, the Estate Vineyard Pinot Noiropens with crushed raspberries and dark fruit aromas accentedwith spicy French oak undertones. Silky smooth mouth feel aswell as racy acidity add to the delicious lingering finish.

    Masut Winery Video

    Masút Vineyard & Winery was founded by brothers Ben and Jake Fetzer with a focus on producing estate Pinot Noir. They are the grandsons of Barney Fetzer who, together with his family built Fetzer Vineyards. In the early 1990’s their father, Robert Fetzer, was eager to begin a new chapter, and he he purchased a 1200 acre property and named it Masút, a Native American word meaning “dark, rich earth”. They began to plant Pinot Noir in this new mountainous area, eventually establishing their own appellation Eagle Peak, Mendocino County in which they are the sole winery. The vineyard is 35 acres of Pinot Noir straddling the western mountains at the headwaters of the Russian River. Each year the goal is to produce one wine of the highest quality and expression of Pinot Noir from the site.

    Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
