Valley of the Moon Sonoma Syrah 2008

Winemaker's 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

Intensely velvet. Beautifully paired with deep, dark chocolate. Happy with beef, chicken, pork... incredible



Tasting Notes:

Ripe Blackberry, white pepper, and hints of savory herbs and cinnamon make up the complex aromas of this wine. The blackberry flavors are accompanied by fresh blueberry, spicy oak and rose hips. Firm acidity and well rounded tannins give this wine a long mouth- filling finish and excellent aging potential.

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.
