Littorai, 2015 Littorai Pinot Noir 'The Haven'

"The 2015 Pinot Noir The Haven Vineyard Estate is dark, plush and inviting. Black cherry and plum fruit give the wine its dark, somewhat somber personality, but it is the wine's overall balance that stands out. Floral and savory overtones add nuance throughout. All the elements meld together effortlessly in a wine that captures the natural intensity of the year and yet remains quite refined. My impression is that the Haven is holding quite a bit back, as it is both less expressive than it was from barrel and also not quite as showy as some of the other wines in the range."

VINEYARD: The Haven is the original Estate vineyard. Planted in 2001, it is a microcosm of the diversity of soils within the Sonoma Coast, containing uplifted undersea volcanic rocks, sandstones, shales and loams.

The Haven is located at 1200 feet elevation between the tiny town of Occidental and the Pacific Ocean. It lies on an east-west ridge and from its southfacing slope where one can see the fog-enshrouded ocean in the distance. The vineyard is late ripening and very cool. It is one of the last sites they harvest every year.

AGING: The wine is aged 16 months in French oak, 25% new.
