Luna Vineyards is the largest estate-planted Pinot Grigio and Sangiovese producer in Napa Valley. Produced in small quantities with the first pick of the vineyard grapes, our wines range from approachable and balanced to a full-bodied expression. Our Luna Black Label wines are an estate-driven experience, available only at the winery and our online wine shop.
The 2013 Luna sparkling wine is made from 100% Carneros fruit; Carneros is known for fertile soils and cool temperatures as it continually receives bay breezes throughout the growing season. This wine is a blend of both of the two dominant varietals suited for this cooler appellation, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. On the nose poached pear dominates followed by quince, guava, honeycomb, toasted almond and finishes with hints of nectarine. It's a wine that is ready for any and all occasions.
Our vineyard is located on the southern end of Napa Valley known for providing excellent growing conditions for white wines. Its proximity to the San Francisco Bay provides morning fog and cooling afternoon breezes, both beneficial to retention of Pinot Grigio's delicate fruit and acidity. This wine exhibits aromas of lemon tart and citrus blossom with hints of jasmine. In the glass, flavors continue with tantalizing fresh mandarin, lemon, and toasted almonds. A lingering, brisk finish is a signature to this vintage.
This Chardonnay comes from our Estate Vineyard along the Napa River. Grapes at this vineyard benefit from sandy well drained soil. They were protected by extended early morning fog and able to ripen slowly, thereby developing complex flavors. The Dijon 95 Clone originates from the heart of Burgundy. The nose is filled with toasted almonds, caramel, and baked apple which continue on to the palate to create a balanced, yet visceral crème brûlée finish. This wine is a full bodied expression of Chardonnay's varietal character and will pair well with salmon and cream based cheeses.
Our 2016 Sangiovese Rosé comes from a collection of our best Sangiovese vineyards in Oakville, Atlas Peak, and Oak Knoll. These vineyards lie in the heart of Napa Valley, and each contributes individual complexities for which the region is known. The nose is a playful mix of abundant watermelon, raspberries, and lilies. The palate is greeted with refreshing mint tea notes and leads to a visceral pomegranate finish. This wine will pair well with hard cheeses, salads and a variety of white meat and seafood dishes.
Our 2014 Sangiovese Classico comes from a variety of prized vineyards including the Game Farm vineyard on the Silverado Trail below Rector Dam. In these shallow, rocky soils, the stressed vines produce superior quality Sangiovese. The nose has a mix of violets, chocolate raspberries, white pepper, and vanilla. The palate is full vanilla, toffee, and cherry cola. Vanilla, toffee and pomegranate linger for a refreshing finish.
Our 2014 Sangiovese Riserva comes from the Game Farm vineyard on the Silverado Trail below Rector Dam, selected for its Brunello clone and shallow, rocky soil. This wine is bursting with blackberry aromas and accompanied by notes of cedar and vanilla. Classic Sangiovese flavors of cherry cola, blackberries, and cedar can be found as you sip. Hints of nutmeg and vanilla linger on the finish.
The 2014 Canto has a dark, inky hue. The nose swirls with blackberry and blueberry, followed by notes of anise, clove and vanilla with cedar in the background. In the glass blackberry continues to resonate, accompanied by interludes of mocha, nutmeg, toffee, and wild blueberries. Velvety, cocoa infused tannins round out the finish. This wine will age gracefully to 2025 and beyond.
In 2014, the hallmark of the vintage are the elegant, well integrated tannins which indicates great cellaring potential of this wine. The nose is greeted with aromas of bursting blueberry and strawberry with milk chocolate undertones. Black raspberry and vanilla follows on the palate accompanied with plush tannins and a cinnamon spice finish. This wine is crafted to go with a wide variety of foods and occasions.
The 2014 Merlot Reserve is our first release of a single varietal Napa Valley Merlot for our Black Label Collection. This wine is a blend of grapes from Carneros, Calistoga, and Pope Valley. All three regions are incredibly unique growing areas and impart unique qualities to this blend. The northern regions are much warmer and have rockier soils that produce dense, bold fruit flavors while the southern Carneros region is cooler and lends more elegant and savory notes. Overall the 2014 vintage was a refined, elegant vintage making classic wines that can be nicely consumed in the next three years, but are strong enough to age for 15 years.
Diamond Mountain is a true gem of California vineyards—exclusive and hard to get to. The 2014 Diamond Mountain Cuvée grapes come from a rugged vineyard located in the northwest portion of the Napa Valley, known for its moderately warm temperatures unlike the extreme heat experienced on the valley floor. The soil is mainly volcanic and highly porous allowing it to cool quickly despite the increased sunlight. The rocky soil imparts minerality and strong tannins to the cuvée, a distinct characterization of the Diamond Mountain area.
Our 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is composed of grapes from vineyards in Atlas Peak in the eastern hills and Yountville on the west side of the Napa Valley. Fragrances of blueberry, anise, and allspice dominate the nose. Deep currant and cocoa powder flavors flow into fine espresso tannins. Blackberries and blueberries continue on the palate for a balanced, elegant finish.
Our estate vineyard is located in the southern end of Napa Valley known for providing excellent growing conditions for white wines. Its proximity to the San Francisco Bay provides morning fog, creating ideal growing conditions to make a fully botrytized late harvest wine. These grapes are left on the vine until 30 Brix. At this time, naturally occurring botrytis sets in the grape clusters, also known as Noble Rot in classic Sauternes production. The botrytis produces luscious honey notes and mouthfeel which perfectly complements the grapefruit and delicate floral aromas of Pinot Grigio.
