Grenache-Pinot Noir｜Santa Barbara County
Lumen wines is a collaboration between owners Lane Tanner and Will Henry with a Scottie Pippin-level assist from Justin Trabue. They set out to make a lively and complex wine. Lumen wines are easy to love and drink as they sit at the perfect alcohol level, plus their commitment to keeping healthy winemaking practices and sustainable sourcing grapes makes this an easy purchase.
The color of this wine is a deep blush reminiscent of Provence and keeping with the theme it's 100% Grenache. Grenache, while now a fan favorite, is a varietal that needs special attention to make sure you pull out the right flavors and have balanced acidity. Lumen has done this in a way that almost seems effortless. At the first nose, you get subtle hints of grapefruit before the smell of fresh strawberries, watermelon, and rhubarb fill your nose. Put it to your lips, and the texture is so soft and luscious it basically holds you hostage. The label should read "upon opening prepare to drink the whole bottle." Now is a great time to remind everyone, please drink responsibly.
