Good Value


Rich nose of kirsch, ripe juicy blackberries, cocoa and vanilla beans. Big hit of fresh, ripe black cherries and berries in the mouth with cocoa, mint, espresso and pomegranate syrup dancing behind. It’s a mouthful. Fine tannins and acidity to support and elevate the flavors. Really impressive. Chiron Cabernet Sauvignon The Paint of Moonlight from Knights Valley walks the fine line of being both drinkable now and great for the cellar. If you drink now, I bet you it drinks best the next day!  100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a knoll-side vineyard in Knights Valley north of Calistoga & Napa Valley.

More Information

2015 is the maiden vintage for Chiron, a miniscule producer based in Napa Valley. It’s a father & son project: the father heads the business part, the son, Bobby Moy, is the talented young winemaker. All four wines in their current release are under 100 cases made. Everything I’ve had from Chiron smell great, are full of fruit, vineyard character and energy. While they can be enjoyed tonight with a good long decant, it will behoove you to cellar them for 3-10 years, depending on the wine. Learn the entire Chiron story on their website.
