2010 Littorai "The Pivot" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1164620 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Pinot Noir The Pivot Estate Vineyard is one of the most beautiful wines in this range of 2010s. Dark red cherries, bramble, tar, licorice, earthiness and incense all waft from the glass. The partial use of whole clusters (15%) is very nicely balanced in this vintage. Firm tannins support the big, structured finish. I imagine the Pivot will take some time to come around, but it is beautiful. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2013)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (2008 was the first vintage for this wine, from vines planted in Goldridge loam in the Sebastopol hills in 2008; this and the Hirsch were vinified with 15% whole clusters): Good bright red. Wild, lively aromas of crushed red and dark berries, blood orange and meat. Silky on entry, then plump in the middle, showing a rather suave texture and complex meat and spice notes. Turns a tad narrower toward the back but finishes subtle, long and pure, with a light dusting of tannins. A vineyard to watch. 91+ (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2012)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Graceful and understated, this delicate style boasts savory, dried herb and berry flavors that are subtle and slow to unfold. Inner quote mark (5/2013)
