2011 LUTUM La Rinconada Vineyard Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

13.01% alc., 125 cases, $50. Mt. Eden clone planted in Santa Lucia shaly clay loam. 25% whole cluster. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Welcoming aromas of earth-kissed cherry, forest floor, spice and a hint of vanilla. Delicately weighted but flavorful, featuring cherry and red berry fruits with good intensity and finishing length. Supple tannins, juicy acidity in the background, and an appealing freshness and transparency complete the picture. This wine leaves a smile on your face. Score: 90. Reviewed January 20, 2014
