2013 LUMOS Wren & Temperance Hill Five Blocks Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., 290 cases, $25. Release January 1, 2016. Certified organic vineyards. Vegan-friendly. Sourced from the 15-acre Wren Vineyard planted to Pommard clone Pinot Noir, located on grower and winemaker Dai Crisp’s 100-acre family farm, and the 100-acre Temperance Hill Vineyard. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Very inviting aromas of cherry, forest floor and a hint of tobacco-laden oak. Vivid and crisp, with black cherry, black raspberry and spice really popping on the palate. Amazing grip and persistence on an incredibly long finish. Beautifully crafted, with integrated tannins and deft oak seasoning. An incredible wine at this price. Score: 92.

2012 LUMOS Five Blocks Wren & Temperance Hill Vineyards Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., $25. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Enticing but shy aromas of dark berries, rose petals and spice. Attention-grabbing attack of mid to fullbodied blueberry, boysenberry and black cherry fruits with an earthy undertone. This wine is still young, sporting defined tannins and toasty oak which show up on the huge, generously fruited finish. Still a bit tight the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle but the potential is obvious. No rush to drink this one. Score: 92. Reviewed February 8, 2015 WINERY » ARTICLE »
