LUTUM Pinot Noir, La Encantada Vineyard 2013

La Encantada Vineyard, located in the Sta. Rita Hills is planted exclusively with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. which sit on a well-drained, west facing slope. The soil is comprised of Santa Lucia shaley clay loam and benefits from the heavy Pacific fog which pools in this valley vineyard, making it an ideal location for cool-climate varietals. The 2013 La Encantada Vineyard Pinot Noir from Lutum delivers gorgeous, high-toned aromas of fresh cranberries and wild red berries which are layered with spices, crushed floral, mushroom and wet stones. This impresses with its beautiful silky texture, focus and wonderful balance of fruit and acidity which remains through the lively finish. Today this wine shows plenty of appeal and should continue to deliver over the next decade. (Best 2016-2026) - May, 2015 (JD)
