  • Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:

    Dominated by Syrah with the remainder split between Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo, the 2021 Canto de Luna is a deeply luscious and pleasurable wine that is capable of holding for several years but is truly delicious right now. The bright berry and pepper notes of the Syrah play a leading role in the wine’s elegantly layered flavors and silky mouthfeel. A perfect wine for those occasions where the wine selection plays the role of simply making the hour more vivacious and jubilant.
