In the glass this Santa Maria Pinot Noir has a dark rusted out center with bright red edges surrounded by a pink translucent halo….
The nose is lush and perfume(y) with a balancing act of candied raspberries and sweet flowers ———-> A revisit unlocks a fresh cut grass and grenadine thing that’s got my mouth watering….
The palate starts tart with lemony acid that quickly transitions into a mid-weight mouthfeel of simple syrup and raspberry purée ——–> A chew and a swish opens up a mid-palate of cran-apple and black cherries before an aromatically lasting potpourri and overripe peach ending CLINGS onto my tongue looooooong after my sip…..
Lumen Wines have done it again y’all!!! This Santa Maria Pinot from the Sierra Madre Vineyard starts bright, goes fruity, ends aromatic, and is nothing short of RIDICULOUSLY good!!! 🎧🎧🎧 listen to this wine with something that’ll have you belting out the chorus like Manchester Orchestra – The Gold
