This vineyard designate from Dry Creek Valley intrigues me. Its nose features vanilla, cinnamon, clove, but rankles me a little with some pickled jalapeno at the end of the aroma profile. Great dark rich fruits with a focus on cherry, plum, and currants then comes a little reduced beef broth which doesn't really spoil the party so much as to lead us into the green pepper flavor and cayenne spice which continue in the finish framed by nice acid and leaving leathery tannins. I tip my hat to the memory of Stan Simpson - Two Moon Vineyards grower and McCray Ridge winemaker; we will miss him. Our love and support go to his amazing wife, Julie Simpson.

Winemaker's Notes:

Untitled Document 2004 Merlot; Two Moon Vineyard, Dry Creek ValleyClub Price $28.00 - Regular Price $35.00 Our Two Moon Vineyard, perched upon a terraced mountain slope nearly 200 feet above the valley floor, has again produced a wine of remarkable depth and complexity. Stressed vines and minimally irrigated in gravelly soil account for the intense fruit flavors and subtle earthy qualities that set this merlot apart from other lowland specimens of the varietal.Heady aromas of creamy vanilla and dusty dark fruit segue into ripe layered fruit flavors of blackcurrant and wild cherry. The wine's distinctive structure—fragrant nose, deep luscious flavors and seamless tannic finish—make it the ideal companion for roast duck, filet mignon, or pasta Bolognese.
