Valley of the Moon Zinfandel 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Just under half of the Zinfandel grapes used to make the 2007 Valley of the Moon Sonoma County Zinfandel came from the winery’s Sonoma Valley estate vineyard. These vines, including the “old vine” block planted in the 1940’s, benefit from an historically recognized and unique “banana belt” microclimate which runs through this area. Hot, sunny afternoons mitigated by cool evening Pacific fog characterize the perfect climatic conditions for growing the finest Zinfandel in the region. This 2007 blend also uses Zinfandel grapes from Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley, adding jammy and spicey flavors characteristic of Zinfandel wines from the area. Petite Sirah from our estate vineyard completes the blend and adds depth to the fruit and structure to the finish.

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

Tasting Notes:

Jammy and briary berry aromas are accented with vanilla and baking spices. Ripe, rich blackberry jam with notes of black currant on the palate; complimented by red and black pepper spice and dark chocolate.
