Valley of the Moon Winery has been in operation longer than any other winery in the Glen Ellen area. The stone structures themselves date back to 1863, and have great historial significance. In 1997 the winery was transformed into a contemporary winemaking facility; still the original heritage was preserved. Valley of the Moon Winery, as it exsists today, is a testament to both vision and rebirth. The history and old walls remain, but the technology and styling is resolutely modern. This harmonious marriage of past and present provides the perfect environment to craft world-class wines. www.valleyofthemoonwinery.com Read less

A bit low key on the nose with layers of vanilla, berries, a bit of Bovril brothiness, and a base of black currant fruit. If it weren't for the fact that this has plenty of acid and its intense fruit isn't sweet, I might be tempted to call it a fruit bomb. There's a ton of fruit here, with dry wild blackberry and lightly gamy blueberry wrapped in a subtle layer of wood spice and dried mushrooms. The tannins show themselves on the finish and while they are noticeable, they really aren't pronounced, allowing the dried mushroom and huckleberry fruit to extend over the modest finish. The texture is the most appealing part: focused, a bit edgy and with palate-saturating flavor yet no sticky weight. This just needs a bit more elegance to make it complete. 89pts

Color is darker than expected for a Pinot Noir. Flowers on the nose. On the palate soft tannins with some strawberry and plum. Very soft and friendly wine.
