Valley of the Moon Zinfandel 2007
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.
