2012 Littorai "B.A. Thieriot Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1216109 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Pinot Noir Thieriot Vineyard Estate boasts stunning mid-palate richness, intensity and precision, qualities that are quite rare to see together, as is the case here. I imagine the 2012 will provide readers with a long drinking window of pure pleasure, as it is already quite expressive yet also clearly has the pedigree to develop even greater shades of nuance over time. Hints of game, tobacco and savory herbs add the final layers of complexity. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good medium red. Briary red raspberry, strawberry, Asian spices and nutty oak on the nose and palate, lifted by a floral element. Dense, sappy and smooth, boasting terrific tangy intensity to its savory red fruit and spice flavors. At once thick and light on its feet thanks to lively, harmonious acidity. Finishes sweet and resoundingly long, with firm tannins fully supported by the wine's depth of fruit. Built to age. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers notes of pure, direct cherry, raspberry, cola and light wilted flowers. Delicately balanced, focused on finesse and refinement. Drink now. (JL) Inner quote mark (8/2015)

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.
