Luna Vineyards Pinot Grigio Napa Valley 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Pinot Grigio is a star bright, light straw color and has a wonderfully expressive nose of pear, peach and apricot. This is a delicious wine with a forward surge of lemon zest and pine nut flavors. On the palate, there are flavors of citrus, fig, pear, pineapple and a faint underlying hint of oak. Barrel fermentation brings a full body to the entire mid-palate. Notes of honeysuckle and orange marmalade close out the finish. This wine is delightful to drink now, and will continue to be at its peak through the end of 2008. Blend: 95% Pinot Grigio, 5% Chardonnay

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
