In the glass, this Santa Maria Pinot has a rosy red center with pink flowery edges and a bubblegum halo
A sniff is a face full of bing cherries and cedar plank ——–> When I dive in for round 2 I’m hit with touch of earth that’s brought home by MOUTH WATERING blackberries….
A drink has a bright red fruit start that quickly turns blue…. The mid-palate is an impossible balance of bing and black cherries that has me goin’, WHOA ———-> The finish gets a little handsy with sharp but inviting tannins that highlight more of the cedar plank that I got on the nose before a long-lasting raspberry ending….
What happens when wine marketing guru Will Henry runs into Lane Tanner, the 1st female winemaker out of the Central Coast??? Lumen Wines is born, y’all! The nose on this Pinot SCREAMS beauty and the palate is just damn delicious….
