    November 3, 2017 - This wine was very enjoyable, but will definitely improve if you wait on it a couple of years. It was medium bodied and full of red fruit like red cherry and Raspberry. It was a well balanced offering between its fruit and its terroir characteristics. The terrior was more clay and stone than it was dirt. Hold this one for a while.

    February 28, 2017 - PnP. Translucent light red. Airy nose of red fruits. Medium light texture on the palate but with the trademark Littorai beautiful balance. Sneaky persistence on the finish. This is quite lovely.

    November 19, 2016 - 13.5% alcohol. Lifted and higher toned with tangy acidity and a profile of red cherry, raspberry, citrus zest, spice, and loam. Texturally supple and smooth with an ethereal finish.

    October 23, 2016 - PnP. Very rich, red fruit forward -- prior description of cola on the nose is accurate. More wood than I expect from Littorai. A little too sweet, ripe, and oaky for my taste; not as balanced as usual. After 1 hour in decanter, didn't improve significantly -- cola character increased, wood more integrated. Day 2: improved somewhat, better integrated. Like a ripe nuits St. George's from a warm vintage; still noticeably hot (alcohol). Wood notes noticeable. Don't believe this will every fully come into balance.
