About Luna Vineyards

Founded in 1995, this 40 acre estate at the south end of the Silverado Trail is more reminiscent of Tuscany than of its Napa neighbors. Planted to Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese, Tocai Friulano along with some traditional California varieties, Luna Vineyards bucks the trend when it comes to the mediocre Italian varietal wines produced these days.

Expert Reviews

88 Points | Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine

($70; a blend of 75% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot and 10% cabernet franc; aged 22 months in barrel) Good deep ruby-red. Deep, rich aromas of liqueur-like black raspberry, graphite and bitter chocolate. Very ripe and concentrated but not porty, with intriguing notes of wild herbs, mocha and spices. A major mouthful of wine, finishing with big, broad, dusty tannins. I find this a bit flat and verging on heavy despite its sound acidity; Drash says that it needs plenty of aeration, but it appears best suited for early drinking. Incidentally, this was the wine presented to me as Canto in barrel last year. The cabernet sauvignon comes from an east-facing vineyard on top of Atlas Peak, at an elevation of 2,200 feet, while the cabernet franc and merlot are from Howell Mountain.

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.

Varietal Image
Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
