Winemaker Notes

The flagship wine of over-delivering for a reasonable price, the Valley of the Moon Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon has all the hallmarks of a Cabernet. Its structure is approachable, the fruit is red with a hint of savory appropriate for this varietal. Oak is well integrated and lends spiciness on the palate. Very appropriate for a weekday wine or for more formal occasions.

This lush, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon offers fresh notes of plum and cinnamon, roasted coffee and fresh peppercorns on the nose. Juicy chocolate-covered cherry, espresso bean, and warm spice flavors mingle with caramelized oak accents leading to a long, smooth finish.

Blend: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc

COMMENTARY: One of the best qualities of a $20 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is the wine's ability to offer tremendous values. The 2015 Valley of the Moon at Madrone is one of the best deals in the marketplace. TASTING NOTES: This wine delivers nicely on the palate. Its aromas and flavors of black fruit, a little bit of oak, and some savory spices make it an excellent pairing choice with braised meat dishes. (Tasted: August 17, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Valley of the Moon Winery, California
Valley of the Moon Winery Winery Image
Valley of the Moon Winery encompasses both the rich history and the innovative spirit of California wine.

Situated in the Sonoma Valley on land first planted to grapes in 1863, Valley of the Moon Winery is housed in a beautifully restored stone and redwood winery built in 1887. Blessed with rich volcanic soils and a distinctive “banana belt” microclimate, the estate vineyard has been a revered source of grapes for well over a century. A block of “old vine” Zinfandel planted in the 1940s is complemented by more recent plantings of Barbera, Sangiovese and Petite Sirah; all farmed sustainably with natural soil amendments and natural pest controls.

Yet Valley of the Moon Winery is a thoroughly modern - even cutting-edge - producer. The state-of-the-art production facility features a full complement of temperature-controlled stainless steel fermenters, and small French and American oak barrels; ideal for Valley of the Moon’s artisan winemaking. In addition to making superb Sonoma County Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir, Valley of the Moon Winery is a leader among California wineries in the production of several exciting up-and-coming wines: Syrah, Sangiovese, Pinot Blanc, Rosato di Sangiovese and Cuvée de la Luna, a proprietary Bordeaux-inspired blend. Sometimes hard to find, Valley of the Moon wines are definitely worth the search.

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
