The Muldune Trail Vineyard is located at about 1,600 feet in elevation, high above the Anderson Valley town of Boonville. The Vineyard’s name is derived from lore and the obscure dialect of English known as Boontling that developed in Anderson Valley in the late 1800’s. In Boontling, a Muldune is a voluptuous young woman, and the Muldune Trail is the trail that young Booneville men traversed in the late 1800’s over the mountain to reach the town of Ukiah to meet young women. Our Muldune Vineyard is located off the Muldune trail and named after its location and for the voluptuous character. Robert Parker compared the 2012 Muldune Trail Pinot to a lush, full bodied Volnay.
Wines From This Vineyard
"Brought up in 48% new French oak, sourced from a higher elevation vineyard on the southern end of the Anderson Valley, the 2015 Pinot Noir Muldune Trail offers a Burgundian bouquet of ripe black cherries, currants, scorched earth, forest floor, and Asian spices. It’s complex, beautifully concentrated and opulent, with a powerful, full-bodied profile. Possessing moderate acidity, drink this pleasure-bent beauty over the coming 7-8 years." - Jeb Dunnuck, June 2018
