By the time it was over, 2014 was the warmest vintage on record, but surprisingly one with characteristics that, counter to the relatively high temperatures, provided qualities for balance and verve to accompany richness and depth in the wines. Those characteristics included an early start, a generous crop (carrying more fruit slowed down sugar development and acid depletion). The 2014 Lux is comprised of six barrels selected from Luminous Hills, with an emphasis on the lower elevation Pommard on sedimentary soil providing the darker fruit and bass notes. Complementary elegant red fruit from the 777 at higher elevation on Jory volcanic soil makes the wine complete and gives the wine balance. The Lux is a rich, hearty, and voluptuous Pinot Noir.
