2010 Tanzer - 92 points - Vivid red. Intense, heady aromas of red and dark berries, cola, incense and fresh flowers, with a spicy overtone. Juicy and precise, but with a silky texture to its vibrant red berry and cherry flavors. Sweet and spicy on the energetic finish, which clings with outstanding persistence. This comes in at 13.5% alcohol while the 2009 version carried 15%, by the way. In the context of topnotch Oregon pinot noirs this wine is a remarkable value. - J.R.

The 2010 Lux is exclusively Pommard and 777. The deep dark Pommard combines with the brighter, redder fruits of the 777 to create a complex, balanced Pinot noir that is definitely Lux.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

"Double Gold", 2011 Oregon Wine Awards

"Excellent", Wine Press Northwest

"Highly Recommended", Northwest Palate Magazine

LUX is constructed from appealing combination of the Pommard and 777 clones of Pinot Noir. The Pommard on sedimentary soil provides the broad bass note foundation, while the 777 on the higher elevation volcanic soil delivers a supporting role of high-toned fruit.

Significant persistence and drive with complexity and broadness of aromas that truly belie its color. Plum and red raspberry come out along with red flowers. Quite seductive fruit shines on the entry with some dusty earth and a hint of oak. Good firm grip and steeliness, which holds everything together. Reveals some turned earth qualities as it opens. The wine is brisk and vibrant as it heads towards a precise finish. - the winery
