Grapes for this wine were sourced from the new appellation known as the Moon Mountain District, the higher-elevation, eastern-lying range above Sonoma Valley. The bottling also contains small amounts of Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Light bodied and restrained, it's briary, dusty and tannic, with sour cherry and cranberry flavors that get juicier on the finish.
