2012 Littorai "The Pivot Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1165589 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Pinot Noir The Pivot Estate Vineyard is pliant and expressive, but also has enough structure to age well for a number of years. There is wonderful depth and density to the fruit, yet the flavors are quite primary, which suggests the 2012 needs time in bottle to develop its full range of aromatics. The future looks very bright. Readers lucky enough to own the Estate Pinot should be thrilled. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Moderately saturated medium red; not as lucid as most of these 2012 Pinots. Began with slightly diffuse aromas of menthol, loam and briars but showed more vibrant notes of raspberry and blood orange as it opened in the glass. Broad, supple and quite dry, showing more red fruits than black. Finishes with dusty tannins and an inviting touch of sweetness. Not yet as delineated as most of the other 2012 Pinots here but this wine needs time to absorb its tannins and express itself. 90+ (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark With nice subtlety, and lots of length, the 2012 Pivot Vineyard offers an earthier presentation, darker fruit character, and more flavour concentration than the Platt Pinot. There is a lot of depth here showing notes of lavender and herbs, wild brush vegetation, and the dark-fruit earthiness mentioned all washed through deft structure and mouthwatering acidity. 17.5+/20 points (ECB) Inner quote mark (1/2015)
