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

  • Enkidu Cabernet Sauvignon Anu Moon Mountain District 2012


    "Dark" nose with some viny sensation. On the tip of the tongue I was surprised by flavors of bright red fruit--normally, I detect black fruit in CS. Lots of mineral and stone mid-palate. Plenty of stiff tannin. An unfortunate unbalance of acid, which I am sure, is why I described the fruit as "bright." I probably should have let this one re... Read More

  • So on a whim we decided to visit British Columbia. But we flew up to Washington, so visited a few places there too. Totally off the subject of wine, I found an awesome bakery in Spokane and the girl there served me this thing that I thought was a kind of Parmesan cheese foam. In fact it was fermented cashew whip, which was definitely weird, but ... Read More

  • Bedrock Wine Co. Chuy Chardonnay Moon Mountain District 2017


    Very pretty deep straw color. Fairly big nose--oaky bouquet, tropical fruit aromas. Noticeable caramel is followed by tropical fruit--pineapple, kiwi--on the tongue. The "Tropical Fruit" descriptor tells you that there is plenty of acid in this one. That's probably why I like it Read More

  • Keating Montecillo Vineyard Zinfandel Moon Mountain District 2015


    Red plum fruit. Mouth-filling. I want to think jammy, but there is not the sweetness that comes with jammy wines. Some herbalness mid-palatealmost minty. A fair amount of tannin, but not over the top. Good everyday drinker. Read More

  • Bedrock Wine Co. Gewurztraminer Alta Vista Vineyard Moon Mountain District 2016


    Quite pale yellow color. Very reluctant nose. Tropical fruit on the tonguepineapple, kiwiand surprisingly little Gewurztraminer spice. The wine is completely dry, but the hyper fruitiness tempts you to think otherwise. Quite acidic. So, it is quite tart, but that makes it refreshing. Very light-bodied. A lengthy aftertaste exactly like on... Read More

  • Keating Cabernet Sauvignon Montecillo Vineyard Moon Mountain District 2014


    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. Fairly short finishfor those who care about such things. A very pleasant wine, but my guess, for whatever that is worth, that more ... Read More
