Luna Petit Verdot Napa Valley 2016
Other Reds | US
We are big fans of all things Luna and have proudly screamed their praises for years. Under $30? This 95 POINT powerfully-built petit verdot is an absolute beast from Napa’s iconic 2016 vintage...and one that we are stoked to offer out at the best price anywhere, and nearly 60% OFF!
Dense and brooding even still, this is dark, rich, and luxurious from the first pop of the cork. Inky and velvety in the glass, with aromas of cassis and blackberry preserves, and simply jam-packed with spices...cedar wood, fennel seed, Madagascar vanilla, and more. This is towering and structured on the tongue, with generous tannins that almost demand a juicy ribeye steak. The fruit is equal to the task of balancing the immensity of the wine, but make no mistake...NOT FOR THE SHY! If you love monstrously large and unapologetically dense Napa cabs – this is for you. This is a heck of a lot of wine for UNDER $30, with plenty of life – like decades – ahead.
Napa’s marvelous 2016 vintage is widely considered to be the best of the decade, and up in the running for one of Napa’s very best ever. We’ve been sitting on this for a while – the very nature of nearly any 100% petit verdot seems to demand patience, and this is as richly layered and opulent a petit as we have tasted, ever. But seven years in – we just can’t contain this powerhouse any longer! Try a bottle or two and we promise – you’ll be running back for more! Prepare to be amazed...the power of petit verdot on full display!
About the Producer
Since 1995, Luna has been a staple of Napa Valley winemaking. The foundation for this property was laid by legendary winemaker and renaissance man, John Kongsgaard, who helped guide these wines to greatness. The founders instantly recognized the magic and the amazing potential of its estate vineyard, perfectly located along the Silverado Trail. They bought the property and followed their dream, building a winery that paid tribute to the varietals that set Napa Valley apart with a focus on Italian varietals.
