Avondale's 'La Luna' Red Blend was named after the moon - a symbol for the way the universe influences Avondale Farm's living system. The soft suppleness of 'La Luna' reflects the graceful ways that this winery is attuned to following biodynamic practices and to being mindful of the astronomical influences on soil and plant life. Comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petite Verdot, this Bordeaux-style Blend is velvety and elegant with pure scents of red and dark fruits, layered with clean cedar and tobacco notes. It has a full, fruit-driven palate with flavors of plum and mulberry that seamlessly blend with the soft, mouth-coating tannins.
