Lutum Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Santa Rita Hills 2014
Hee hee heeeee! Wowoooeee! LUTUM comes screaming like a bat out of hell to rock your world once again!! YES --- our HUGE Lutum purchase earlier this year (the brand is closing up shop to concentrate on other brands they own) just keeps on delivering --- OUTRAGEOUSLY sexy, complex, lush wines...today is another massive overachiever for you (95 POINTS Wine Advocate!!), at a whopping, delicious, these-guys-are-off-the-chain price!! More than 50% OFF!
*** DON’T wait, don’t think on it, don’t put your head over the backyard fence to ask your neighbor what he thinks -- this single-vineyard rock star is one of the smaller batches of all the Lutum we bought and one of the highest-scoring, too. Have you tasted any of these killer wines?? Then you KNOW!! ***
WHEW! OK. Hope that was urgent enough. Hey, we do this for you -- killer pinot is a MUST in every home as far as we’re concerned. OK --- here’s the scoop. It’s a long one! Go get some and read this later!!
You saw this was a 95-point pinot, right? And saw our price?? LUTUM is one of the wineries run by the intrepid and brilliant Bill Price, with rockstar winemaker Gavin Chanin (just Google the press on his wines on top of what he does at Lutum!). Bill Price owns Three Sticks, Head High (a Last Bottle client all-time fave if there ever was one…!) and he is an investor/owner in such glorious vineyards as Durell, Gap’s Crown and many others, and also has active interests in Kistler Vineyards and Gary Farrell wineries. This guy does NOT mess around! THE BEST!
Lutum is being disbanded to focus more on the Three Sticks and Chanin brands. We, due to our dashing good looks of course, were able to secure the remaining inventory, and, kids, these are drop-dead fabulous, sexy, concentrated, silky wines.
This one hails from the legendary Sanford & Benedict Vineyard. It is priced to bring a tear to your eye. Bright red cherries, cherry pie, silky, succulent red fruits, wrapped in a warm coat of toasty spices, and, as the review notes: “ethereally textured”. BOOM!
Bright garnet in color, this wine is an example of the dark fruit and powerful spice the Sta. Rita Hills are known for producing. The nose is dominated with aromas of allspice, with secondary notes of pomegranate and cranberry. The palate is bursting with acidity, while fine tannins help create a long, mouthwatering finish.

About The Producer
LUTUM was born from a shared vision between Bill Price, entrepreneur and owner Price Family Vineyards, and winemaker Gavin Chanin. Their wine focuses on small-production, single-vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from prime vineyard sites in California. The name LUTUM is Latin for dirt or soil, referencing their mission to make wines that express these great sites, with little to mask the vineyards’ natural character. Together, they are the Bards of LUTUM.
