Tasting NOTES

Big, brooding aromas of fresh blackberry cobbler and cola announce to your senses that this wine has nothing to hide. The warm berry pie theme continues on the rich, full-bodied palate, with mouth-filling texture and flavors that donât shy away through the finish. Hoist this heady libation with pleasure, but be careful how many times as one too many sips will have you saying: "Goodnight Moon [Mountain]". Best enjoyed wihin 8-10 years from vintage.

Vineyard NOTES

Made from a unique blend of mountain and valley fruit, this club-exclusive zinfandel offers the best of both worlds. Gazing over the Sonoma Valley on the southwest-facing slopes of the Mayacamas mountains at an elevation of 1350-1700 feet, the Nuns Canyon Vineyard in Moon Mountain AVA provides small yields of concentrated, powerful and structured Zinfandel from its steep, red volcanic soils. This strong core is beautifully accented with bright, focused and finesse-driven fruit from Bartholomew Park Vineyard - a historic, valley floor site in Sonoma Valley just 2 miles from our estate Rhinefarm vineyard.
