Cabernet Sauvignon from the Carneros region always maintains a striking freshness and acidity. The Cabernet Franc brings about bright red fruit. The Merlot contributes beautifully to the midpalate. The resulting wine is fresh, with bright juicy berry fruit and a touch of animal and spice characteristic of these Bordeaux-type varieties.
Sam Baron and Shaunt Oungoulian are two young California wine makers dedicated to remaining California wine makers. Sam Grew up in a winemaking family working in vineyards from a young age. After his studies at UC Davis, Sam staged in Burgundy, spent some time in San Francisco retail, and assisted Chris Brockway. Shaunt trained in chemistry at UC Berkeley but then studied oenology at Davis where he developed a love for natural wine. This led him to stage with Philippe Valette, and in turn led us to Les Lunes with endorsement from Valette.
The two are now tending vines in Paso Robles of San Luis Obispo, and driving the grapes to their wine cellar in Orinda in the East Bay to make these juicy wines.
Sam and Shaunt are also part of the team of Populis Wines, along with Martha Stoumen and Diego Roig.
