2012 Littorai "Roman Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1198381 91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Pinot Noir Roman Vineyard is one of the more immediate wines today in terms of its up-front, succulent fruit, but at the same time, it has more than enough tannic clout to age well for years. Dark cherry, plum, cloves, menthol and dark spices wrap around the creamy, expressive finish. The style is round and generous but backed up by a terrific sense of energy. In short, there is a lot to like. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (13.7% alcohol): Dark red. Chambolle-like perfumed aromas of dark raspberry, blood orange, black pepper, exotic spices and crushed stone went into a shell in the glass. Densely packed but weightless, offering superb smoky intensity to the fine-grained flavors of dark raspberry and minerals. Finishes with dusty, serious tannins and slowly building, palate-saturating persistence. This very young and fairly tannic wine boasts good power and energy, especially for a pinot from 14-year-old vines. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

K&L Notes

Littorai derives their unique sustainable farming techniques from the fertile cross currents of permaculture, agro-ecology and the agricultural philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, the father of biodynamic farming. In addition to using only natural materials, they avoid all fertilizers. Estate produced compost is their “fertilizer” of choice. For those sites which they do not farm themselves, they use by-the-acre contracts to insure maximum quality and vineyard control, and they strongly encourage all of their farmer-partners to use only organic materials. They do not employ farm certification systems, as they believe that the true motivation for engaging in sustainable farming practices should not be for marketing purposes, but should be only for the good of the land, for the good of those who work it and for the future generations to whom it truly belongs.
