Produced since 1989, Moraga Red has been the winery’s defining product. The Estate Red is produced entirely from grapes cultivated on the steep hillsides and benchland blocks on the property. The blend changes every vintage but includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and usually small amounts of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

Winemaker Scott Rich strives to craft a wine that reflects the estate’s unique terroir.  The result is a red blend that consistently shows both red and dark fruits such as cherries, cassis, plums and berries with notes of tobacco and lingering minerality.  A hint of what is described as the scent of the Santa Monica bay Breeze (which waffles through the vineyard on an almost daily basis) can be found in many of the vintages.  With all of Moraga vintages though, there is a signature profile:  lovely fruit, notes of earthiness, striking minerality and velvety tannins.

Perhaps among the most notable features of the Estate Red is its propensity to evolve and improve with age. The Estate Red shows an evolution from fleshy berry intensity to more dried fruits flavor.  The emergence of cedar, tobacco, leather and a hint of spice come as the wine moves from its youth to full maturity.

The Estate Red, like all terroir driven wines, is dependent upon the nature of the growing season in defining its character from year to year. However, the steep, well-drained hillside vineyards of Moraga Bel Air produce fruit that is consistently transformed into a wine of complexity, sophistication, and elegance.

2017 Moraga Red
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes

Our Moraga Canyon estate vineyard has ancient marine soils and a distinct microclimate that clearly differentiates the property from other California appellations. The steep vineyard, planted at elevations of 900 feet, is recognized as an exceptional site for creating wines with a sense of place. The character of the vineyard is strongly reflected in the wines; in the Moraga red, the calcareous soils connect each vintage with a common thread. There is a unique and identifiable Moraga signature of soft tannins, supple texture, pure black Cabernet fruit, currant and tobacco. This vintage shows black cherry, roasted coffee and a hint of caramel on the ripe nose. Polished tannins and fresh acidity deliver flavors of blackberry jam, truffle, vanilla, and caramel. Grapes from the vineyard’s many different exposures allow us to build complexity and optimize each blend with regard to structure, ageability and elegance. The Moraga wines are more akin to those of Bordeaux than to their Californian cousins. We produce the best possible fruit in a sustainable manner. Our Moraga vineyard is a total eco-system with areas of native vegetation and extensive gardens that serve as insectaries for beneficial insects. A permanent cover crop of native grasses and wildflowers is maintained in order to prevent erosion and improve overall soil health. Our tight knit crew of eight people do everything by hand from the first spring bud break to the final label on the last bottle.
