The days of overripe and overhyped Pinot have come to a close. No longer are we staring at the glass and wondering why, as a whiff of noticeable heat permeates our palates. The new game in town is about f nesse, delicacy and true Pinot fruit. Pinot Noir has undergone a Burgundy-inspired renaissance. It's a good time to be a Pinot lover in the New World. l utum, the latin word for "dirt" or "soil," is the foundation from which Gavin Chanin builds the portfolio of Lutum Pinot Noir. The goal is to make wines which are the ultimate expression of variety and site; cool climate Pinot Noir which maintains its natural beauty. Tasting through the Lutum lineup is like taking a tour of California's top Pinot-producing vineyards. The quality is very high for this new project, and the future is bright. ✦ LUTUM PINOT NOIR rating bottle Durell Vineyard Sonoma Coast 2012 (1705072) WA 93 $64 La Rinconada Santa Rita Hills 2011 (1705040) JR 92 $57 Bien Nacido Vineyard 2012 (1705071) JR 92 $55 Sanford and Benedict Vineyard Santa Rita Hills 2012 (1705051) WA 94 $62
