Lumen Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2018 is a wine that embodies the unique terroir of the Santa Maria Valley. With a deep ruby color and aromas of dark cherry, raspberry, and spice, this wine offers a complex and nuanced flavor profile that evolves with each sip. On the palate, flavors of red and black fruit, along with hints of clove and vanilla, mingle with a vibrant acidity and smooth tannins, leading to a long and satisfying finish.
Crafted by winemaker Lane Tanner, this Pinot Noir is a true expression of her passion for the varietal and the Santa Maria Valley. The grapes were carefully hand-picked, sorted, and fermented with native yeasts. The wine was then aged in French oak barrels for 16 months, with 30% new oak, to add complexity and depth.

With Lumen, they focus on producing site-specific wines that reflect the distinct qualities of each vineyard they work with.
