Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Complex aromas of blueberries and lavender accented by chanterelle mushroom, blackberry and cedar. The concentrated fruit, floral and earthy notes are balanced with ample acidity and supple tannins.

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

Really Twizzler-y on the nose and a bit tight at first, but with some time to breath in the glass this opens up nicely. Some tart red berry fruit mixed with dark cherries provide a nice flavor balance. Almost a tea with honey flavor on the back end which I find very interesting.
