  • 13.9% alcohol. Light ruby colored with a slight bricking/brown tinge at the rim. That Littorai signature/sense of purity, finesse, and balance is very much on display in this bottle. Offers up a beguiling, intriguing, and multifaceted aromatic and flavor profile of sweetish and tangy red fruits, clove, allspice, tea, flowers, and maybe a hint of citrus peel. Drinking beautifully with lots of life left. Well worth the $39 I nabbed this for on Wine Bid ~6 years ago.

  • I drink a lot of Pinot and this is the real stuff! I wish a lot more "real" Burgundy tasted half as nice. And its from overthetop California (read shock and awe.....)

    Wonderful from the first whiff to the last loooong lingering finish, this complex, nuanced, balanced bottle was great (and according to Ted, this isn't even one of the ones he's most proud of).

    Notes of hi toned flowers, earthy moss, sweet fruit, giving way to spices and a complex blend of flavors that while light on the palate pack a focused and prolonged "punch". Its at that mid point between fruit and savory with elements of both. A great combination to catch so if you have a few bottles in your cellar, try one now and see what that's all about. Smashing!!

    Tasted (and reviewed here) several years ago, it has most definitely continued to improve with additional cellar time (it was great then, even better now). Bravo.

  • A pretty wine, with a lovely floral scent. Really - this was crazy at first - I thought maybe it was my glass. Anyway, under the floral notes, hides raspberry and spices that follow onto the palate. Medium in body, zippy acidity, tea-like tannins and a long, smooth finish.

  • Quite nice. Resolved. Raspberry, plums, good balancing acidity. Light mouth that seems to belie the subtle power of the package. Good length.

  • Popped and poured. Light ruby with perhaps a clearing/browning on the edge. Spice and herbs on the nose with a floral fruit note which is subtle. Lovely medium weight on the palate with some RRV velvet with a long finish echoing the spice and herbs on the nose; the fruit here has completely integrated and although the long finish says this will last, I don't know that it will improve. Will see how it evolves. Develops more intensity over time; as noted on the last bottle this lacks the aromatic complexity to merit an even higher score.
