    August 25, 2016 - My second bottle of this. What great balance in this Pinot. The light color is still a little surprising, but the wine easily makes up for it with great red fruits and soft tannins. If you have never checked out Littorai, Ted Lemon is making Pinot the right way!

    August 6, 2016 - PnP. Light red - quite pale in fact. Airy red fruited nose - cherry, strawberry blood orange. Lush red fruited palate w sweet red berries. Nice finish w enough acid to be beautifully balanced. This is really lovely - echoes a 2010 Sonoma Coast Pinot from Littorai which also played well above its weight class.

    July 6, 2016 - Very light in color but excellent body and mouth feel. Lots of red fruit and a hint of earth, this wine is all about balance. Lithe tannins gentle in the mouth and not too fruity. Very enjoyable. Still seems like it will age for another few years. Not cheap but very much worth it.

    December 15, 2015 - The lightest Littorai I ever remember both in color and body, none the less it has a nice mouthfeel and good with a meal. Red fruits dominate but this is no fruit bomb elegant treatment and not complex layers of flavors. Simple straight forward pinot.
