Moon Mountain is part of the Mayacamas Mountains, which divide the region from Napa. Though the AVA is newer, these hillsides house some of the most historic vineyards in California. High elevation and volcanic terrain imbue this Cab with uncommon richness and intensity, while Caton’s treatment of plenty of French oak results in creamy vanilla and suave tannins that you’ll be over the moon for. Only 600 cases made!
Serving Suggestion: Grilled beef liver w/ caramelized onion & mushrooms. Hearty winter lentil stew w/ plenty of carrots, potatoes & bay leaves. Seared ribeye & broccoli w/ charred scallion butter.
