Cabernet Franc (45%), Cabernet Sauvignon (45%), & Merlot (10%)
"Les Lunes manages and performs all aspects of farming at the Millen and Black Vineyard. Everything is 100% organic, neither synthetic herbicides nor insecticides are used and all sprays are timed in relation to the moon. As we transition to dry-farming, the vineyard is watered minimally two or three times a year depending on vintage conditions. Composting and cover crops are used to increase the organic material, life and vitality of the soils. The balance of the blend comes from the farmers we partner with who farm their old-vine vineyards with focus, care, and 100% organic practices. Les Lunes helps to manage the farming for their friend who owns the Massie Vineyard. This vineyard is given the same care and commitment to organic as all of our others.
All of our grapes were harvested and vinified separately at their own optimal ripeness. Each was hand-destemmed and gently macerated at cool temperatures for 4-14 days. The wines were then aged for 8 months in a combination of neutral oak and HDPE tanks at which point the components were blended and bottled without fining, filtering, nor SO2 additions and aged an additional 7 months in bottle before release.
Cabernet Sauvignon from the Los Carneros region always maintains a striking freshness and acidity, the Cabernet Franc brings about bright red fruit, and the Merlot contributes beautifully on the mid-palate. The resulting wine is fresh, with bright juicy berry fruit and a touch of animal and spice characteristic of these Bordeaux-type varieties."
