Since our founding in 1975, we have been fascinated by the purity, elegance and aging potential of Pinot Noir grown on mountain vineyards. In 2015, our appreciation for the depth and complexity of these wines led us to Muns Vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Located above the fog line at 2,600 feet, Muns Vineyard has an ideal south-facing aspect that looks out over the Monterey Bay. While the site benefits from abundant sunshine, the high, windswept location lengthens the growing season, while producing thicker grape skins.

Varietal Content: 100% Pinot Noir; Cooperage: 100% French oak - 30% new, 70% neutral
Winemaker Notes
Located at an elevation of 2,600 feet, this windswept mountain vineyard has produced a beautifully structured wine with enlivening acidity and supple, balanced tannins. On the palate, flavors of ripe raspberry, cherry and fruit punch mingle with hints of root beer and anise, driving the wine to a bright, sophisticated finish.
Production
The season began with one of the wettest winters in memory, followed by a warm spring that led to a well-timed budbreak. The warm, sunny weather continued throughout summer, providing ideal growing conditions. After a significant Labor Day heat spike led us to harvest a few of our earlier-ripening sites, a perfectly timed cooldown in late summer and early fall provided additional hangtime for the rest of the grapes to achieve optimal ripeness. While overall yields were down slightly in 2017, the quality is excellent.
