Decent cab. Tried it a week ago, so cant recall it exactly, but it was fairly typical california cab. Read more

Paid almost $30.00 was excited. Was let down. Started nice with some floral notes, and a bit of berry middle, finished overly dusty. Read more

Winemaker's Notes:

The rich, complex flavors of the 2005 Moon Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon reflect both the diversity and synergy of grapes grown in Sonoma’s soils and climatic regions. “The expansive aromas and mouthfilling flavors of this wine are thick with dark cherry, cassis and smoky spices,” said Winemaker Carol Wilson. “The ripe dark fruit flavors, supported by velvety tannins, culminate in an elegant finish that lingers with bittersweet chocolate and spice nuances.” The 2005 vintage provided long hangtime for notably rich Cabernet Sauvignon character with balanced acidity. Heavy winter rains during vine dormancy gave way to a dry, mild March. Significant rains returned in April and May, delaying bloom but not affecting berry set. Summer temperatures were desirably mild, with few heat spikes. September’s fog and cool temperatures slowed sugar accumulation, and then perfect conditions arrived in October for a late harvest. We finished picking Cabernet Sauvignon for this wine in late October, resulting in fully-developed flavors and silky mature tannins.
