2006 Muns Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 380 cases, $40. 17 months in 33% Hungarian oak. · Lighter in color and body than the 2005 vintage, despite the higher alcohol. Darker red fruits including cherries, strawberries and raspberries are featured enlivened by a touch of minerality, savory herbs and oak spice. A hint of alcohol peaks out on the nose. There are moderate ripe fruit tannins that give the wine substance. A pleasurable wine that is easy to drink. Reviewed March 15, 2009
