2011 Littorai "Mays Canyon" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1164604 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2011 Pinot Noir Mays Canyon impresses for the quality of its tannin, silkiness and exceptional overall balance. A wine of detail and total translucency, the Mays Canyon captures the essence of this magical Sonoma site. Fine, chalky tannins support a long finish laced with small red berries, mint and sweet tobacco. This is unquestionably one of the highlights in the range of 2011s. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2014)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2011 Pinot Noir Mays Canyon bursts from the glass with exuberant Russian River fruit backed up by the classic Littorai sense of structure. Sweet juicy cherries, sweet spices and cola all take shape in this expressive, luscious wine. The 30% whole clusters are not at all evident in this forward, exuberant Pinot. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2023. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2013)

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.
