    Winemaker 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.

    Moon Mountain
    High in the Mayacamas Mountains on the western side of Mt. Veeder, more than 1,000 feet above the Sonoma Valley, Moon Mountain Vineyard offers some of the most difficult winegrowing conditions in California. The steep south-facing slopes, punctuated by volcanic rock outcroppings, consist of thin, well-drained soils derived from volcanic ash and lava. Situated well above the fog line, the vineyard receives generous sunshine late into the afternoon. This combination of frugal soils and warm, sunny microclimate stresses the vines to produce rich rewards: small crops of superbly concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes.

    Organic farming keeps the vines in balance and healthy, while enhancing the grapes' flavors. Harvested at full maturity, the grapes receive meticulous care in the winery, including slow aging in small oak barrels in mountainside caves and careful blending to achieve mouth-filling flavors of black cherry and currant fruit, complemented by subtle spice and toast complexity.

    The only all-rosé appellation in the Rhone, a Tavel comes in many hues from light salmon to bright pink and is said to be the only rosé that can actually age—and improve. The rosé wines of Tavel have a great historic reputation, having been favored by King Louis XIV in the 18th century, as well as famous authors, Balzac and Mistral.

    Tavel are always dry but the high percentage of the fruity Grenache (30-60% of the blend by law) and even Cinsault, give charming aromas and flavors that make them feel "almost sweet." A great Tavel rosé will have a bouquet suggestive of rose petals, apricot, strawberry and red currant. The palate may be fleshy, round and layered but is always fresh and balanced.
