Here I am again in the Napa Valley!
This dealcoholized Red blend is 70% Pinot Noir; 30% Zinfandel grapes. The intention with this wine is there, the terroir seems considered, but it is not delivering for me on flavour.
It has black cherry aromas, like the label says, but they are overwhelming. I get almost a cough syrup vibe. Which is not what I want in my glass of red.
This follows through in flavour, more subtly so, but it’s still there. There is oak, there is tannin and acid. All the parts are there but it’s like they are not lining up and balancing right to give me my desired drinking experience. Its like they are battling to cover up the cherry flavour and sort of failing. To me the overall flavour is fake and looking at the ingredients list I am not entirely suprised. You are not getting a good clean drinking experience here.
If you are in the US and after a good non-alcoholic red, my money would be on the Lautus Savvy Red. I think it is by far a better offering than the Luminara.
