I love vacations, you can drink as much wine as you like, and never have to worry about the alarm clock disturbing your malolactic slumber! So, since I'm on vacation, we'll have plenty of time to explore some wonderful wines, and tonight we have a 2008 Valley of the Moon Zinfandel! You know how I love Zins, and this one has a cool label to add to the mystique of the wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

Just over half of the Zinfandel grapes used to make the 2008 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 a 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.

Tasting Notes:

Jammy and briary berry aromas are accented with vanilla, cumin and baking spices. Ripe, rich blackberry jam with notes of black currant on the palate; complimented by cocoa, roasted coffee and black pepper spice notes. Soft tannins, balanced acidity and light toasty oak frame the finish.
