Sonnet Pinot Noir Muns Santa Cruz Mountains 2015


Anthony Craig, winemaker of Sonnet, speaks candidly on his wine which, in a way, is a sonnet or homage to terroir:”I have always stated that I do not make Burgundy style Pinot Noir in California; only Burgundy can do Burgundy. Having said that, there are attributes from
Burgundy that I look for in a vineyard that can give me some of those
characteristics within the California style that I unapologetically make: acidity, elegance, finesse of texture, minerality, & most important of all, that traditional fruit expression of black cherries. The Muns Vineyard gives me all of these things & allows me to make a 'classically styled' pinot. The truly tight-grained Hungarian oak allows me to age the wine for longer than is usual for California pinot & allows the true black cherry flavours to emerge fully while integrating nicely with the oak spice of nutmeg & vanilla. While this wine can be drank now for it’s youthful vigour & fruity expression, it is worthy of long term aging & will reward those who are patient enough to allow it to mature.” Could not have said it better myself…
