2016 Sarah’s Vineyard Muns Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., 420 cases, $45. This vineyard is one of the highest in the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA at 2,600 feet above sea level. Dijon clones 115, 667 and 777. · Light ruby red color in the glass. Shy, but pleasant aromas of cherry, underbrush and tea leaves. Forward drinking and quite agreeable in a mid weight style with fresh flavors of cherry, strawberry and blueberry. Young, grippy, mountain tannins need more time in bottle to ameliorate. The intensely fruited finish is delectable and is the wine’s best feature. Score: 90. Reviewed April 1, 2018
