For 2016, the Luminous Hills “silver label” is a fourteen-barrel selection from a broad range of the diverse elements of the Luminous Hills vineyard. For the first time, this wine is split between two bottlings: 750ml and 375ml. This blend is the “big picture” story of what Luminous Hills is all about: delicate red fruit from the small berry Dijon clones at higher elevations, darker spicier notes from the 115 clone canted southeast on the lower elevation sedimentary soil, and a robust foundation from the Pommard also on sedimentary soil facing southwest. 2016 was a vintage in which nature provided a natural open fruit set and a beautiful arc to the season after an early start following a warm winter. The transparency of the vintage called for less new oak; instead we utilized a much higher percentage of once and twice filled barrels to ensure adequate structure without dominating, coupled with a modest amount of whole cluster fermented lots for an added layer of complexity, earth, spice, length and age-ability.
