    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

    February 3, 2014 - Similar to previous notes, evolving well, continues to impress.

    July 22, 2013 - Fantastic wine. Should get better with time, but great now. Balanced red and blue fruits with a bit of herb and earth. Lovely
