More About This Wine
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.

($60) Medium ruby-red. Deep, brooding aromas of cassis, minerals, menthol and dark chocolate. Rich and tactile wine with solid underlying structure and a subtle sweetness to its flavors of dark plum and dark chocolate. With its solid acid/tannin spine and slightly medicinal, minerally aftertaste, this makes for a rather serious drink today. I'd hold it a few years.
