November 22, 2014 - A beautiful, classic pinot with notes of spiramint and sage on the nose and red berry fruits on the palate. Medium bodied and very nicely balanced, perfect for the table as this paired fine with a variety of fare last night at Table 34.

July 27, 2014 - 13.5% alcohol. Lovely nose of strawberry, raspberry, mint, brown spices, and an earthy suggestion. In the mouth this shows a compelling spiciness, good balance and integration, and a softer and supple texture with a tangy/twangy edge to the sappy red fruits. While this doesn't quite offer the depth or refinement of the single vineyard offerings, it is still an outstanding effort at a fair price (~$40 off the mailing list).

May 31, 2014 - Aromatic nose of sweet red and black cherry, raspberry, mint, leather, forest floor and turned earth, which showed on the palate. Good, bright acidity. If not for lingering sweet cherry, this would be a dead ringer for red burgundy. Great stuff

April 13, 2014 - Pinot Noir tasting
My second bottle of this. Found it to be a bit more brambly compared to last year, still with mint notes and cherry. Recognizable as new world but certainly displays some of the Burgundian character littorai is known for. Well balanced and savory. Found the finish a touch short. Drink now
