Littorai, 2015 Littorai Pinot Noir Mays Canyon

95
"The 2015 Pinot Noir Mays Canyon is a heady, exotic wine. The 2015 still needs time to come together, but is quite impressive today. Dark cherry, plum, sage, mint and dried flowers build as the wine gains volume and intensity in the glass. The tannins require patience, but all the elements are in place for the 2015 to be fabulous in another few years' time."

Littorai

VARIETAL: 100% Pinot Noir

VINEYARD: Mays Canyon is home to the Porter Bass Estate. At 200-400 feet elevation, this site is somewhat unique as it is surrounded by the Russian River on three sides. Skirted by redwood trees, they help keep to form a protective barrier that warms the climate of the vineyard. The Hugo gravelly loam soils also help to capture and retain the heat of the day offering the vines additional warmth as the fog begins to roll in. Re-planted in 1999, this site has been a vineyard since the late 1800s.

AGING: The wine spends 16 months in French oak (25% new). (270 cs)
