Reviews and Ratings

The 2013 vintage of the Chardonnay Luminus is made from grapes grown in the Oak Knoll district of southern Napa Valley. The wine was aged in about 25% new oak barrels. The Chardonnay clones are relatively new Burgundian clones rather than the Old Wente clones. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
