Littorai Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Thieriot Vineyard 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Good deep, healthy red. Very ripe aromas of plum, smoke, earth and cola. Sweet, lush and broad, with a hint of reduction. The largest-scaled and most pliant of these 2003 pinots, but without the lift or inner-mouth perfume of the Summa. Finishes with dusty but fine-grained tannins, Morey-like suggestions of wild herbs and impressive persistence. Lemon dropped a lot of fruit here following an uneven set but still ended up with a reasonably full crop. (May/Jun 2005) PinotFile: 100 cases. Always the pick of the litter for me. A concentrated wine that retains elegance and femininity. Previous vintages have been totally sensual. (2/21/05)

All of the process waste from winemaking is recycled through a constructed wetlands system and re-used for vineyard and property irrigation. The property where the winery is located is farmed biodynamically and using only organically certified materials. Construction of our own facility has been a goal of Littorai Wines since inception in 1993. We began farming biodynamically in 2001 and since that time it has been our objective to establish a self sustaining, integrated and diversified farm. This winery site presents a unique opportunity to tour a biodynamic farm and learn about this exceptional agricultural method which offers long term solutions to the future of farming. Read less
