Winemaker's Notes

The 1999 vintage began with a mild spring followed by a moderately cool summer, resulting in the grapes gaining longer hangtime, which develops complex flavors. This marked the first year we harvested grapes from the vineyard blocks that were replanted due to the 1996 wildfire. Our low yielding mountain vines produced intensely concentrated grapes with extraordinary ripe flavors and well-integrated tannins. More than fifteen separate lots were fermented from our estate vineyard and two adjacent vineyards on Moon Mountain. From these, we selected ten lots for the Moon Mountain Reserve. This wine is characterized by aromas of ripe blackberry, classic Black Forest Cake with hints of wild Sonoma sage, and has a long, lingering finish.

We suggest pairing this wine with a cheese course or rack of lamb. -Randall Watkins, Winemaker
