Luminesce 2010 Pinot Noir Arroyo Grande Valley


I love Pinot Noir, which is why I constantly seek it out. Luminesce is a great new fave by winemaker Kevin Law, who makes three excellent pinots. This is his value-priced pinot, mostly grown at Laetitia Vineyard, and it’s delicious. Friendly and fruit forward, it opens with tangy flavors of bright cherry, layered with darker notes of black cherry, and plum, enhanced with subtle notes of black pepper and spice. It’s delightful on its own and great with an array of foods, like grilled steak, roast chicken, and lamb. Only $26 retail, it’s at Tastes of the Valleys Pismo.
