About the 2008 Muns Vineyard Pinot Noir: 90 points, Richard Jennings, RJonWine.com, Huffington Post
Muns Vineyard brushes the sky on the Loma Prieta ridge top at 2600′ above Los Gatos and Monterey Bay — the highest Pinot Noir vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The maritime breeze from the coastal fog bank cools the vineyard in the summer, and it is not unusual for the vineyard to be blanketed in snow in the winter. This is an ideal location in the mountains to grow Pinot Noir and cool climate Syrah. Muns Vineyard supplies Pinot Noir grapes to a number of wineries, and produces a small amount under its own label. See the website at www.munsvineyard.com.
