Luna Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve 2005

Member Review by dddunn:

I loved this wine. Had it at the Luna tasting room this summer and was blown away. I first drank the 2004 reserve about a year ago and I can still recall the nose and the mouth feel. The 2005 is different but just as good. I could easily give this a solid 5 in my rating, but haven't had enough of this wine to really understand it. The fruit and cloves were stupendous. I can't say enough of this wine, nor recommend it more highly.

Walk through the wrought iron gate and enter another world. Drink in the rustic beauty of olive trees, towering poplars, and leafy oaks that landscape the grounds surrounding our estate's Italianate architecture. Be transported by our spectacular setting to another time, another place while enjoying every moment of the here and now that Luna Vineyards offers. When George Vare and Mike Moone first laid eyes on the Luna property in 1995, they instantly recognized the magic, and the amazing potential, of its estate vineyards. Plus, it was perfectly located along the Silverado Trail. So they bought the property and followed their dream, building a winery that paid tribute to the varietals that set Napa Valley apart. They also planted visionary varietals like Pinot Grigio and Sangiovese, which weren’t then well known in Napa Valley. Read less

The deep blackberry color carries through on the nose, mingled with blueberries and anise.On the palate, there are more black fruits and graphite combined with a lush, velvety texture.The bright fruit flavors complement dusty tannins on the finish, like fine dark chocolatesprinkled with cocoa nibs. Our 2005 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a great deal offinesse, and we can expect it to be at its peak from 2012 through 2018.
