Elegantly structured with rich, round tannins, the 2013 vintage of Luminary boasts vibrant impressions of wild cherries and blueberries as well as fragrant spice notes of cinnamon, smoke and toast.
Deep, rich layers of raspberry, cherry cola, white pepper and dark ripe fruit expand on the palate, which is beautifully concentrated but balanced by bright acid and subtle wood nuances.
For generations, New World winemaking in America has followed Old World rules. Those rules established that wines, even those that feature multiple varietals, should be crafted from fruit from one particular region or state. We came together in this collaboration with the goal of turning this philosophy on its head to redefine the idea of an American estate red blend.
The 2013 vintage of Luminary includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Verdot and Merlot from Napa Valley; Syrah from Horse Heaven Hills, Washington; Zinfandel from Alexander Valley in Sonoma County; and Grenache from Edna Valley, California.
We feel these regions offer the best representation of their respective varietals. Bottled alone, each offers impeccable character. Blended together, they become a whole new work of art.
