2011 Muns Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

80 cases, $40. Released November 2012. Two versions of Muns Vineyard Pinot Noir were made in 2011: one is the usual style crafted by Tony Craig and the other (tasted here) was made by winemaker Ryan Beauregard using native yeast and aged 8 months in second use American oak barrels. · Wild and exotic on the nose featuring delicate red cherry fruit and a hint of volatile acidity. Slightly confected red cherry flavor with hi-tone acidity and soft tannins. For the adventurous. Decent. Reviewed April 13, 2013
