Moon Mountain Vineyard is located high on the Sonoma Valley side of Mount Veeder, at nearly the 2,000-foot elevation. The steep, southern-facing slopes consist of soils called the Sonoma Volcanics, which are derived from rock, volcanic ash and lava. These soils, combined with the rigors of growing on the mountainside, push the vines to work harder, resulting in small, intensely flavored fruit. To balance these rugged conditions, we organically farm each row to gently enhance the complexity of the vineyard by creating a rich, healthy growing environment and produce grapes with pure flavors and a pronounced sense of place. – Description from iskicm

    Muted flavors of dark fruitnicely, unsweetened. A lot of unresolved tanninsunderstandable for such a young wine, but I know of numerous Napa mountain cabs whose tannins are much more in your face. Pleasant acid.
