Winemaker's Notes

The fruit for the Moon Mountain 2003 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was 100% estate grown, hand harvested and field sorted into small bins. Fermentation took place in open-topped tanks, with each lot handled separately. The wine is 100% free run (the juice that flows freely from the grapes without pressing), meaning the lower quality press wine was not used. Barrel aging was in our deep caves, which provide a constant temperature of 60ºF and very high humidity. We used 100% French oak, 75% of which were new barrels, and aged the wine for 21 months before lightly filtering and bottling.

Rich in mountain blackberry and ripe currant flavors, the wine has nuances of wild Sonoma sage, cedar, and roasted coffee.

Enjoy the Reserve Cabernet with roast leg of lamb, grilled steaks, and venison.

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
