Moraga Vineyards Estate 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The canyon locale of the Moraga estate vineyard has ancient marine soils and a distinct microclimate that clearly differentiates the property from other California appellations. The steep vineyard, planted at elevations up to 900 feet, is recognized as an exceptional site for creating wines with a sense of place. With regard to structure, ageability and elegance, the Moraga wines are more akin to those of Bordeaux than to their California cousins. -Winery notes

The Joneses were inspired to pursue winegrowing in Moraga Canyon because of the similar characteristics of its microclimate and soil to that found in the Bordeaux region of France. The soil differentiates Moraga from other California appellations. Submerged under the Pacific Ocean for millions of years, the Los Angeles, basin was thrust upward to create its current topography. As a result, Moraga has deep gravel beds in the Canyon bottom and hillsides composed of an ancient seabed containing marine fossils and shells - ideal for growing high quality wine grapes. Read less
