Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"The outstanding 2013 Chardonnay Luminus comes from the Oak Knoll sector of southern Napa Valley. About 25% new oak is used in this cuv??e, and it is made from the newer Burgundian clones of Chardonnay as opposed to the Old Wente selection (which actually came from Burgundy many decades ago). This wine exhibits pineapple, poached pear, honeysuckle and buttery melon notes in addition to a subtle use of wood, and a medium to fullbodied mouthfeel. Consume this beauty over the next 45 years."
Vinous Antonio Galloni
"Lemon peel, white flowers, crushed rocks and mint are all laced together in the 2013 Chardonnay Luminus, which emerges from a site in the Oak Knoll district. The flavors are bright and beautifully delineated in this impeccably balanced Chardonnay from Beringer."
