Rich fruit aromas of BlueBerry, Blackberry & currants enhanced by subtle Vanilla flavors.
Cuvée de la Luna is a unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Individual barrel lots were chosen from Sonoma County's premier viticultural areas. Our best lots of wine from Sonoma Valley, Sonoma Mountain, Dry Creek and the Mayacamas Range were all used in this reserve "Meritage" style wine. “The goal with this wine for Valley of the Moon", says winemaker Steve Rued, “is to make the most complex and best tasting red wine possible. Its non-varietal label gives us the ultimate flexibility to adjust the blend from year to year."
The fruit for this wine was harvested in late September/early October after 2001's exceptional growing season. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine was aged for twenty-four months in French and American oak barrels.
