VALLEY OF THE MOON 2OO8 CUVÉE DE LA LUNA
Aged in small oak barrels for 24 months, this Cuvée is a blend of 8O% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 5% Malbec. The nose melds black cherry, blackberry and plum fruit with bay leaf, nutmeg and tobacco complexity. Blackberry and raspberry flavors are accented by herb and earth notes, plus a hint of black pepper. Due to the unusually small harvest, just 15OO cases were produced. Suggested retail is $3O. Available from Horizon Beverage Company.
