2011 Lutum Pinot Noir La Rinconada Vineyard Sta. Rita Hills
($50) Vivid red. Sexy red fruit and incense on the highly perfumed nose. Suave, sweet and penetrating, offering intense raspberry and rose pastille flavors brightened by juicy acidity. Finishes silky and pure, with impressive clarity and spicy persistence. Lutum is a new project of winemaker Gavin Chanin and investor Bill Price, whose Classic Wines owns or is heavily invested in numerous wineries and vineyards across California, including Kosta Browne, Kistler, Gary Farrell and Three Sticks and the Durell and Gap’s Crown vineyards. 92
