2012 Littorai "The Haven" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1198382 92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark I am not sure if the 2012 Pinot Noir The Haven Vineyard Estate will ever fully emerge, as it remains compact, tense and very much closed in on itself. Still, there is a sense of verticality and overall structure that is impossible to miss. Today I am inclined to think all the 2012 needs is time, but readers will have to be patient. The Haven is likely to always remain a powerful, incisive Pinot. (AG) 92+ Inner quote mark (1/2015)

Outer quote mark Light purplish crimson. Clean, spicy and sweet. Racy lift. Excellent modern Pinot. Racy and already juicy and a good drink. Not burgundy but a very valid style. Polished and pleasurable. Long. Liquorice. Ronan Sayburn points out that it was less good after a while in the glass. 18/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

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.
