Winemaker Notes
Blend '41 was named to pay homage to the year, 1941, when Valley of the Moon winery was established. This wine displays dark fruit and cassis aromas, with a structured mid-palate, and well-defined tannins, reminiscent of a comforting cherry pie. Born from the components used to enhance our signature wines, Zinfandel plays the leading role in this bottling. The unique characteristics found in both Syrah and Merlot fill and round out the ‘jammy’ profile the Zinfandel brings, while Petite Sirah refines the texture.

Tasting & Pairing
This wine is perfect for spicy BBQ dishes, lighter fare or a homemade pizza- it is the most personable friend who gets along well with others!
