2018 Magnus Pinot Noir
2018 Magnus Pinot Noir

Only produced during the best vintages, Magnus is a rare bottling that includes the most opulent barrels from 2018.  Underscored by old-growth forest earthiness and the sweet char of French oak, this wine shows a brazen mélangé of dark-skinned Cascadian wild berries, brown baking spices and cedar; framed by well-tempered tannins.

This barrel selection honors Mark's  grandfather Magnus, a loving husband, respected businessman, and fair-minded civic and political leader.      

Awarded 93 points by James Suckling

Production notes

The fruit was gently de-stemmed, cold soaked for four days, then gradually allowed to warm up prior to fermentation. The fruit was pumped over once a day at the onset of fermentation and then punched down once per day until dryness. It was then settled for 2-3 days prior to being racked to a variety of French oak barrels for ageing.

Other notes

2018 was the seventh in a string of warm vintages at Bjornson. It was defined by a very dry summer, which made for small clusters and a relatively small crop. July was hot, leading to the first signs of veraison in early August, but our reliable evening maritime winds kept night-time temperatures cool throughout July and August, preserving acidity in the fruit as it ripened. September finally brought a couple of welcome rain events that refreshed the vines and kept them active through the final ripening period.
