Lumos Wine Co. 2011 Five Blocks Pinot Noir, Oregon, $25

By on January 26, 2014

lumos-wine-company-five-blocks-pinot-noirGrower/winemaker Dai Crisp operates his tasting room at his family’s Salmon Safe vineyard in Philomath, Ore., but the production facility is McMinnville. There he created a fascinating Pinot Noir that fills the nose with youthful notes of cherry juice, blueberry and cherry fruit leather. On the palate, it continues that fruit-forward approach with more cherry and raspberry flavors, backed by a structure that leads with food-friendly acidity over tannin. This received a silver medal at the 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 855 cases

Alcohol: 12.5%
