2007 Littorai "Hirsch Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1193985 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium red. Strawberry, flowers, fresh herbs, black tea and spices on the nose. Juicy, bright and gripping, with lovely acidity framing the strawberry, orange peel, licorice and spice flavors. Finishes with sweet tannins and very good length. Winemaker/owner Ted Lemon noted that cool weather in May and June of '07 resulted in an extended and uneven flowering but that the season from that point was "close to ideal, with little stress on the vines." Some brilliant sunshine at the end of August was great for early-picked vines (as a general rule, Lemon prefers to pick early, especially with chardonnay), but then "everything stopped" during the middle two weeks of September due to cooler conditions, and there was "a very long pause" at Littorai. Ultimately, says Lemon, the 2007s have acidity levels similar to those of the 2006s but with lower pHs. (ST) 91+ Inner quote mark (6/2009)

Outer quote mark The outstanding 2007 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard exhibits copious aromas of bouquet garni, smoke, meat, earth and black cherries in its medium to full-bodied, attractive, fresh, lively personality. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2011)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Complex and layered, with a subtle buildup of savory berry, herb, black licorice and roasted cedar flavors. Medium- to full-bodied and very nicely balanced, ending with loamy berry and earth notes. (JL, Web-2011) Inner quote mark
