"Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2017 Pinot Noir Muldune Trail reveals gregarious notions of raspberry tart, Morello cherries, wild blueberries, and lilacs plus nuances of cracked black pepper, baking spices, and root beer. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers impressive elegance and energy with loads of restrained red fruit and earthy nuances, finishing long and plushly textured." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, February 2020
Wines From This Vineyard
The Esate-owned 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.
