Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The wine has a classic dark ruby core moving to light garnet hues on the rim. The nose has a generous amount of fruit showing its lineage from the warm California sun, but with a perfect balance of wet forest and earth tones. Aromas of ripe strawberry, black cherry, rose petal candy, rhubarb pie, forest floor, and various exotic oak spices show intensely without reservation. The palate is much different than I expected displaying a brightness and tension to the fruit similar to what one finds in the reds of Burgundy with flavors of slightly tart cherry, cranberry, pomegranate, wet leaves, grape stems and oak spice. This wine is young, however interesting now, the future is bright and just a few years of ageing will bring perfect integration to the palate and nose. Ideally consume 2018-2025. If drinking young, please decant 1 hour, then serve in Burgundy stems at roughly 55-65 degrees.
Vineyard Notes
Muns Vineyard is located at the top of the Summit area in the Santa Cruz Mountains on a southwest facing slope. The vineyard is owned and farmed by Ed Muns. Planted in 1998, the 13 acre vineyard sits impressively at 2600 feet. Monterey Bay influences combined with sandstone and loamy soils produce wines with minerality and striking acidity. Pinot Noir Clones 114, 115, 667, 777.
