2009 Littorai "The Pivot" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1164619 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Pinot Noir The Pivot is one of the more delicate wines in this lineup of 2009 Pinots. Weightless and elegant, the Pivot impresses for its understated fruit and subtle floral notes. Crushed flowers, spices, dark red cherries and herbs add lift on the finish. This is another superb, classy wine from Littorai. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2012)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fresh and snappy wild berry and blackberry fruit has a touch of roasted coffee notes. This is medium- to full-bodied, and spicy, offering mineral, black tea and savory herb touches that firm on the finish. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2011)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full red. Musky, slightly reduced aromas of redcurrant, plum, mocha, black tea, iron and tobacco, plus a whiff of rhubarb and pomegranate. Then supple, fleshy and smooth, with a restrained sweetness to the flavors of crunchy berries, spices and tea. Very distinctive wine, at once broad and weightless. With its peppery, spicy aftertaste, this conveys a strong whole-cluster character. (ST) 91+ Inner quote mark (5/2011)

K&L Notes

According to Antonio Galloni, Littorai is making "some of the most refined, polished Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs being made in California today. I can’t recommend the wines highly enough."
