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.

Alcohol: 14.2%

Lumen Pinot Noir 2018
Sanford & Benedict Vineyard

In stock / U.S. Shipping Available

Tasting Notes:  Aromas of black raspberry, wet slate and crumpled carnations are lathered in toasty oak on the nose of this wine. The palate is loaded with fresh red-fruit and rose-petal flavors, but there’s a rocky line of minerality and a tannic tension that pumps it to the next level. -M.K.  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.
