Valley of the Moon Syrah 2007
The fruit for this Syrah primarily comes from two notable regions of Sonoma County: The Sonoma Valley and Russian River Valley. The grapes grown in the Sonoma Valley produce wines with intense color, full structure, and concentrated fruit flavors. The wine produced from grapes grown in the cooler climate of the Russian River area contributes dark berry fruit enhanced with earth and spice character. Together, these differing yet compatible profiles allow for a complex and harmonious blend.
Editorial Reviews for Valley of the Moon Syrah
Tarry and chocolately with notes of vanilla, dried fruits, smoke, ash, and a touch of diesel. Round, yet fresh and bright, in the mouth with lightly spicy plum and blackberry fruits. This is quite fruit-forward with just a little spice on the backend and a slightly drying, though moderately long finish. 87pts
