L U N A 'Blue Label' Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa

Regular price $65.00 $50.00 Member Price

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • 90 Points Wilfred Wong, Silver Medal Sommelier Challenge
  • St Helena appellation
  • A bit of Yountville Petite Sirah blended in rocks this Cab to give complexity and lush tannins

WINEMAKER: Shawna Miller, alumni of Beaulieu and Rombauer,  also works with Philippe Melka on Moone-Tsai.

AVA DESIGNATED: Yountville and St. Helena, Napa Valley

WHAT WE TASTED: Super good structure with aromas of currents, violet and black cherry with a hint of cedar. Flavors hit the palate with a hint of anise then juicy red berries and pepper. Supple finish.

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • BBQ pork ribs, summer corn, salad
  • Morton's burger with blue cheese sitting at the bar
  • Lamb any which way

PERSONALITY: The Blue Label Series by Luna is a cut above and represents their foray into single vineyard bottlings. We applaud them and highly recommend this award winning cabernet. We also believe winemaker Shawna Miller should be more well known

TECHNICAL:

  • Aged 50% New French oak 
  • Unfined and unfiltered
  • 85% Cab, 15 % Petite Sirah
  • Clone 337
