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

Pink to red in color. Very flavorful, nice taste of a red without any of the harsh tanins. Slightly fruity.

Tasting Notes:

The 2007 Valley of the Moon Sangiovese displays fresh, forward raspberry and red cherry aromas, accented by a hint of sage. Red cherry also dominates the generous flavors, with a deft note of cinnamon complexity. The lithe palate keeps modest, well-integrated tannins in the background and leads to a long, vibrant, balanced finish

While Sangiovese is an up-and-coming varietal for California, it is a long-revered traditional Mediterranean varietal which has proven to be well suited to Sonoma County.
