2012 Littorai "Cerise Vineyard" Anderson Valley Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1197348 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Littorai's 2012 Pinot Noir Cerise Vineyard is one of the more precise, lifted wines in this range. The style emphasizes precision, nuance and detail. Readers should expect to find a Pinot that will be slow to reveal the full breadth of its beauty and class. Hints of game, smoke and licorice add nuance to the finished, crystalline finish. This is a fabulous example of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. (AG) 94+ Inner quote mark (1/2015)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The nose, with its cherry and mint aromas, is reserved at first but becomes more perfumed with aeration. It has more overt richness than the Pivot Vineyard wine of the same vintage, and the tannins are firmer and almost burly. It's concentrated and spicy, with good underlying acidity and a long, robust finish. (SB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Healthy dark red, the deepest color of these 2012 Pinots. Sexy aromas of dark berries, violet, spices, minerals and mocha oak. Densely packed, spicy and powerful, displaying a penetrating character to the supple but classically dry flavors of dark fruits, pepper and spices. Still youthfully closed, but already shows lovely inner-mouth perfume and energy. A serious tannic backbone should support a graceful evolution in bottle. (ST) 91+ Inner quote mark (6/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Deep bright crimson. Bluer crimson than the 2009. Racy and fresh, lively and more sophisticated. Lighter and fresher. (JR) 17/20 points Inner quote mark (4/2019)
