Valley of the Moon Pinot Noir 2012
Valley of the Moon wines are steeped in the history of Sonoma Valley. The name Valley of the Moon borrows its origin from the translation of the Native American word Sonoma. With a winemaking tradition as rich and deep as the soil where the grapes are grown, Valley of the Moon’s wine program today features all that this region has to offer.
Valley of the Moon has a wine for each palate and pairing. All of the wines highlight the Sonoma region. Find a new favorite Chardonnay – oaked or unoaked – or try the popular Pinot Gris - Viognier Blend. Red wine lovers will enjoy the single varietal Zinfandels, Pinot Noirs and Cabernet Sauvignons. Looking for a crowd-pleaser? Try one of the popular blends: Blend 1887 is jammy, juicy and fun while Blend 1941 is bold, complex and rich. For a special occasion or a connoisseur experience open a bottle of Valley of the Moon Reserve: the winemaking team reserves the best grapes for these fine wines, crafting and aging them with extra care.
Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.
