Lumen ‘Escence’ 2019
(CLUB ONLY)

In stock / U.S. Shipping Available

Lumen Escence is the first orange wine ever produced by Lumen. We picked our favorite Pinot Gris at Sierra Madre Vineyard a few weeks early, which means it had low sugars and high acidity, then fermented on the skins for a full 12 days. The resulting wine is full of character: meyer lemon, orange zest, grapefruit rind and wet stone minerality.

Alcohol: 11.5%

Lumen ‘The OG’ 2019
(CLUB ONLY)

Out of stock / U.S. Shipping Available

The OG is the first of its kind. The brainchild of Lane Tanner, who always wanted to make a ‘Frankenwine,’ and Will Henry, who wanted to explore his orange roots. Lane’s version was made with adding fresh organic ginger to a fermenting barrel of Grenache Blanc; Will’s version was a full skin contact Pinot Gris. The two wines, both made ‘sans soufre’ or without added sulfites, were then blended before bottling. The result is a wine the likes of which you have never tasted. Ginger is a natural antioxidant, and we think it will preserve the wine much in the way sulfites do. Needless to say, it is the only additive in this wine other than yeast and grapes – and a whole lotta love.

Lumen Pinot Noir 2017
Sanford & Benedict Vineyard (CLUB ONLY)

In stock / U.S. Shipping Available

Tasting Notes:  The only Pinot Noir we produce outside of the Santa Maria Valley, due to the pedigree of this incredible vineyard.  We harvested just after a solar eclipse. Cherry cola and boysenberry fruit, tarragon and sandalwood on the nose, followed by undulating flavors of blueberry, rhubarb and cardamom. Lane says, “The clone 2A is a big bruiser and needs to be picked a bit later than many PN clones so you will always see our S & B a bit higher in alcohol than our other wines. This 2017 vintage is everything I expect from S & B. It is not for the faint of heart. For those of you that like a more refined PN, please store this away for 5 to 17 years. For you head bangers out there, drink it now! I would still give it an hour or two to breath but…trust me…it’s a block buster in a bottle!” 90 cases produced.  A Pinot Noir with great aging potential.  Drink now through 2040 or beyond.
