Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants had a 99-point achievement at the Critics Challenge International Wine Competition in San Diego, California, for their Lux Pinot Noir.

The platinum-winning Lux Pinot Noir is an American grown Pinot Noir, with grapes sourced from some of the top wine growers in Northern California and produced in the company’s Chicago-based winery.

The medium-bodied varietal boasts aromas of cherry, baked fruits, earth, smoke, lavender, and vanilla with fruitful flavors of berries, black pepper, coffee, and clove.

Recently recognized by The Wall Street Journal, Cooper’s Hawk also received silver medal nods for their Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Ice Wine, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, and the signature Cooper’s Hawk Red at the same competition.

“The philosophy we applied to our Lux Pinot Noir is the same philosophy we use to create all of our wines and has led us to receive over 300 wine awards. This accomplishment is a true testament to our team’s commitment to the winemaking craft,” says Tim McEnery, founder and CEO of Cooper’s Hawk.
