2006 Silver Mountain Vineyards Muns Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., $38. Clones 114, 115, 667 and 777. Grapes are hand-picked, de-stemmed, whole berry fermented with cap management using an air-induced process (PulseAir) that is gentle on the fruit. Aged 17 months in 33% new tight-grained Hungarian oak. · Interesting aromatic profile of wild berries, cherries, herbs and oak spice. An earthiness and minerality is evident in the cherry flavors and there is a good dose of citric peel on the finish. Reviewed March 15, 2009
