    July 11, 2016 - The lively tart and juicy fruit was not present in this bottle, making the wine rather dull. I preferred it a lot more when it was young. In between phases maybe ?

    June 24, 2016 - Last note nailed it. Rhubarb, light cherry, light raspberry, light strawberry. A tiny hint of sweetness next to a very dry gevrey from 2005. I liked the 2013 les larmes a bit better, but for the price, at least the old price, these are wonderful. They used to be 39 bucks, or am I just getting old. Why do producers claim to care so.much about their old loyal customers and then slowly raise the entry level price so much. Either way, littorai makes beautiful wines.

    March 13, 2016 - Powerful raspberry and cherry nose. First day this was surprisingly closed. High toned red fruit, raspberry dominant. There was a persistent sour note, almost medicinal but prickly, that I found unpleasant. My wine is dark and somewhat cloudy, not transparent as others noted. Acidity is medium+. Day two much more supple and approachable. Sour note has faded but slightly prickly note persists. Good, but I preferred the 2012 Littorai Sonoma Coast.

    December 27, 2015 - Raspberry smell and taste, light red fruit, mild cherry, light body, soft tannins, nice acidity, can drink with foods that you might only drink a Chard. Elegant
