    November 11, 2016 - Light ruby color, showing a crisp and old world hue. Nose is tense and lean, showing pure bottom vine beauty which transponds to minerals, crushed stones, wet paint, stems and violets. The palate leans lean and very old world, think burgundy but without the funk - perhaps domestic pinots only knock. Spicey and lean cherry fruit, touches of dried flower, macerated and stingy chutney, hints of oak and vanilla on the way back palate. Perhaps not to most domestic CA Pinot lovers tastes, but for purity of fruit with nuance of terroir this wine is well done. Only negative is it's a bit mono on the depth meter. But I am still going 92 for style

    September 13, 2016 - Tasty red fruit, forest floor, and floral notes on the nose and smooth airy palate with moderate finish.

    September 12, 2016 - Hits all the right Pinot notes nearly perfectly. More red than purple hued. Beautiful nose of gentle but deep cinnamon and red fruit. Gentle, full mouthfeel and flavors that sit right at the sweet spot between fruit, alcohol, and acidity. Pinot heaven. My first littorai. We had it at a restaurant in Healdsburg, so I'm going to try to get an appointment to visit the winery today.
