Littorai, 2015 Littorai Pinot Noir Cerise Vineyard

96
"The 2015 Pinot Noir Cerise Vineyard is endowed with serious fruit density and tons of pure power. Succulent red cherry, plum, lavender, cloves, new leather and licorice all flesh out in this potent, virile Anderson Valley Pinot. A dense, full-bodied wine, the Cerise is going to need time to come into its own, but it is super-impressive and vivid, even in the early going. The balance of fruit and tannin is one of the many things make the Cerise compelling."

Littorai

VARIETAL: 100% Pinot Noir

VINEYARD: Cerise is a beautiful hillside vineyard situated between 800 and 1100 feet elevation in the northeast range of mountains above the town of Booneville. This is the warmer side of the Anderson Valley, where with the fog intrusion you find great diurnal swings. Coupled with poor top soils, this steep exposition allows them to harvest fruit with a high skin-to- juice ratio from the struggling vines. The soils vary within the three cascading hills that make up Littorai’s parcels of the vineyard allowing for complex and well-structured wines.

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