The Full Moon Red was first bottled in 1998 under the label Full Moon Zinfandel. It has evolved into a Zinfandel and Syrah blend designed to be light, fun, fruity, and fan friendly. It is Midnight’s “pool, porch, patio, picnic, party fun wine.” It’s the perfect pairing for any backyard BBQ, pizza, or cheeseburger! The Full Moon Red is a very informal wine, just “shut up and drink it.”
Beautifully clean, ripe, and fruity in the nose. Red fruits abound as the wine greets your palate. A wonderfully balanced mouthfeel leads to an amazing array of flavors. Blackberries, spice and stewed red fruit cascade about the tongue. The wine finishes fresh and fruity.
While 2015 experienced a drought, vintners took satisfaction in the high-quality, concentrated wines they were able to produce. There was a significant amount of rain in July, giving the vines healthy growth throughout the summer. Temperatures rose in August and September, bringing great ripeness and abundant smooth tannins. 2015 was a vintage with outstanding concentration and excellent acids, complemented by beautiful perfume, texture, and intensity.
60% Syrah 40% Zinfandel
