Very Good Value

Husband/Wife owned wine…only wine they make. It is “Estate Grown” Zinfandel: owned by Bill Moore, Molly’s uncle. Farmed by Mike Hendry.  Planted in 1905, “R.W. Moore” is head pruned, dry farmed and sprinkled with Petite Sirah, Carignane, Mourvedre and Valdiguie (5% combined of these four).

I totally dig this wine (as Greg Brady would say). Ripe, briary berry core with dried thyme, anise, black pepper and cinnamon dusted over. The balance of ripe fruit, savory earth and winemaking is superb. Old vine Zin spice kicks in on the finish. So good, and worth every penny of $40 in the realm of high quality red wine.
