Les Lunes Black Vineyard Merlot

Region: Coombsville, California, United States
Grape varieties: Merlot
Dark and deep, yet still. Organically farmed by Shaunt and Diego since 2017, this is the inaugural release from the historic Black Vineyard. We love the Napa Valley, especially the Coombsville region, for its ability to produce ripe flavors at lower alcohol levels and this wine showcases the great terroir of Napa. Aged in neutral French Oak barrels for 24 months and another 12 months in bottle before release, this wine will remind you of the great wines of the late 1970s that put California on the map.

More About This Wine
At Les Lunes Wine we lease our own vineyards, work our own vines, and built our own cellar. We’re blazing our own trail like the pioneering winemakers of California. Our goal is to grow wines that pay respect to the great wines of California’s past.
We do very little in the cellar because we spend time in our vineyards. Proper pruning, precise suckering, well-timed treatments, and thoughtful weed management let us minimize the pesticide inputs in our vineyards. We do this to preserve the indigenous microbes on the grapes and in the soils, which leads to healthier and more complex wines that don’t need adjusting or stabilizing.
Our goal year in and year out is to bring you a unique taste of the distinct times and places which we love and tend. The care that we bring through the entire winegrowing process shines through into the final product. Our wines are balanced in their youth, but the care we invest in the winegrowing will continue to reverberate in your cellar for years to come.
