2014 Valley of the Moon Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County
This Valley of the Moon flagship wine over-delivers for a reasonable price!
Our Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon has all the hallmarks of a great, true-to-style Cabernet. Its structure is approachable, the fruit is juicy red with a hint of savory which is appropriate for this varietal. Oak is well integrated and lends spiciness on the palate. This wine is very fitting for a weekday wine and/or for more formal occasions.
Composition: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 4% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petite Verdot
Valley of the Moon wines are produced by Madrone Estate Winery, one of Sonoma Valley's oldest and most historic winery estates. Originally founded in 1863, the Stewart Family purchased the estate - then named Valley of the Moon - in 2012 and completed a renovation to focus on estate-driven, small lot wines from the historic property. Valley of the Moon wines honor an important 75-year era when Italian proprietors Enrico Domenici and Henry Parducci grew grapes and made wines at the estate. Valley of the Moon wines are available nationally in restaurants and wine stores.
