Cuvée de la Luna is a unique blend of traditional
Bordeaux red varietals. The Winemaker's goal is
to make this blend the most complex and best
tasting red wine possible. Its non-varietal label
provides the winemaker the flexibility to assemble
the blend each year based on the results of each
vintage. Individual barrel lots were chosen from
Sonoma County's premier viticultural areas. Our
best lots of wine from Sonoma Valley, Dry Creek
Valley, Sonoma Mountain, and Alexander Valley
were all used in this reserve "Meritage" style
Black currant and cherry reduction aromas;
enhanced with anise and black tea notes.
Complex, concentrated black and red fruit flavors
blend with a rich oak and dark chocolate finish.
Supple tannins and balanced acidity provide
excellent structure to this elegant and complex
"This is the winery's Bordeaux blend, and it's almost always quite a good and interesting wine. They’ve held the price steady for many years while maintaining if not increasing quality, to their credit. The 2005 is dry, full-bodied and fairly tannic, with a good balance of fruit, herb and earth flavors. Ready to drink now."
