Winemakers' Notes: "An assembly from our leased vineyards across Sonoma County made from vines aging from 20-70 years old. Super classic, old-school CA Cabernet Sauvignon with taught blue fruit and savory herbs." - Shaunt & Diego

Farming: Les Lunes farms all of the sites that go into this wine. Strictly organic and practicing regenerative farming, Shaunt and Diego focus on soil health, good pruning, and minimal inputs to allow the sites to truly express themselves to their full potential.

  • Stone Barn & Locke Vineyards: Located just outside the city of Sonoma on the Huichica soil series, these deep, loamy soils paired with the cool climate lend to beautiful blue fruit and freshness.
  • Marcheschi Vineyard: 60-year-old dry farmed Cabernet Sauvignon in Alexander Valley on stony, alluvial soils give an aspect of depth and power to the wine.
  • Pyaleh Vineyard: Merlot from the heavy clay Carneros soils gives weight and balance to the midpalate.
Vinification: The grapes from each vineyard are harvested and fermented separately at optimal ripeness and fermented at cool temperatures with 100% destemming. The lots are pressed at dryness (typically 10-14 days) and aged for 10 months in barrel and tank at which point the wine is racked off the fine lees and blended before bottling without fining or filtering. 18ppm SO2 added prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes: A classic California Cabernet, there is a firm tannic structure that is balanced by luscious blue/dark fruit on the palate and plenty of dried herbs, olives, and cassis on the nose. Delightful with its primary fruit, the wine does exceptionally well with grilled/roasted meats and veggies.
