2011 Littorai "Savoy Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1154730 92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Littorai's 2011 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard is soft, refined and silky on the palate. Sweet tobacco, mint, crushed flowers, dried cherries and raspberries lift out of the glass in a delicate, refined Pinot long on class. This is a relatively ethereal, feminine Pinot with terrific near and medium-term appeal. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2014)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dullish red. Perfumed aromas of cherry, strawberry, mocha and underbrush, lifted by a floral nuance. Supple on entry, then slightly tart-edged in the middle, with moderate depth and cut to its red berry and spice flavors. Nicely supple wine with moderate complexity and a slightly dry, edgy finish. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark A wine from 'the true north coast of Sonoma: the coastal mountains of Sonoma and Mendocino counties'. Mix of clones in Savoy vineyard, planted 1991-93 and organically farmed, on the cooler north-eastern side of the valley, protected on two sides. Loam over Franciscan shale at the toe of the slope. Low intervention winemaking, no additions. 18% whole cluster. Mid to pale crimson. Pale rim. Sweeter smelling than the Foursquare but no specious sweetness, lifted red cherry. Suggestion of delicacy. Delicate and silky on the palate, light flow. Not a huge a mount of flesh but plenty of refinement and a fine-boned structure and lovely cool fresh length. So delicate but with great intensity. 18/20 points. (JH) Inner quote mark (11/2013)

K&L Notes

Littorai derives their unique sustainable farming techniques from the fertile cross currents of permaculture, agro-ecology and the agricultural philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, the father of biodynamic farming. In addition to using only natural materials, they avoid all fertilizers. Estate produced compost is their “fertilizer” of choice. For those sites which they do not farm themselves, they use by-the-acre contracts to insure maximum quality and vineyard control, and they strongly encourage all of their farmer-partners to use only organic materials. They do not employ farm certification systems, as they believe that the true motivation for engaging in sustainable farming practices should not be for marketing purposes, but should be only for the good of the land, for the good of those who work it and for the future generations to whom it truly belongs. *Biodynamic*
