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

91 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2009

($25; includes 4% petite sirah) Good full ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of raspberry, bitter cherry, licorice and rose petal. The palate offers terrific juicy berry intensity with brisk framing acidity; reminded me of a top zinfandel from the days before this variety was routinely overwhelmed by new oak or blurred by overripeness. This sharply delineated fruit bomb finishes with substantial dusty tannins and noteworthy purity, cut and length, showing little sign of its 14.9% alcohol. Drink this now or hold it for three to five years. The sangiovese craze in California has passed, but Luna's example remains consistently excellent-and gently priced.

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.

Sangiovese

The trademark of wines from Tuscany, and especially those from the region of Chianti, was once the fiasco. This straw-colored flask may carry associations of lengthy rustic meals out on the portico of a villa in the Tuscan countryside, but this romantic reverie must be interrupted with a burst of reality...
