Littorai, 2015 Littorai Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard

"The 2015 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard has not changed much since I last tasted it from barrel. Tightly wound, inward and raw, the Hirsch gives the impression of struggle and stress, which is not entirely surprising given the tiny yields at this site in 2015. It will be interesting to see if the wine comes together in bottle more fully. Today, the tannins are aggressive and overpowering. Even so, there is enough fruit density and persistence to make me cautiously optimistic."

VARIETAL: 100% Pinot Noir

VINEYARD: Hirsch vineyard comprises a series of ridgetops, three miles from the ocean, northwest of the seaside town of Jenner. Rainfall is abundant between October and April, with the summer dry and desert-like. The climate can be erratic and unpredictable with wide annual swings in moisture, temperature, storms and wind. Elevation ranges from 1200 to 1550 feet. This is San Andreas Fault territory, resulting in varied and complex soils.

AGING: Fruit spends 16 months in French oak (25% new)
