2011 Pinot Noir- Muns Vineyard   

This 2011 vintage from the Muns vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains, offers classic pinot noir varietal character: black cherries, red berry fruit and minerality. They are all held together in perfect harmony with the delicate interplay of balanced acidity and soft textured tannins. Hints of vanilla and cinnamon spice linger on the palate all the way to the finish. This is a wine worthy of further aging, yet will pair nicely with your favourite salmon dish.

The Muns Vineyard is located on a ridge at 2600’ on Loma Prieta in the Santa Cruz Mountains overlooking the Monterey Bay. Cool foggy mornings, windy afternoons and well drained sandy/shale soils make it perfect for growing pinot noir. It is planted wholly to 4 Dijon clones: 115, 667, 777 & 114 also known as the usual suspects in California pinot vineyards today.
