Favorite vineyard from one of my favorite producers. Vosne-like spice on the nose, elegant fruit. A bit softer with less tension on the finish than 2014. — 17 days ago
Boisterous fruit profile with sepid tannins and a lovely lingering, if not slightly warm finish. Nice wine, but think you can find similar quality at a more accessible price point. — 19 days ago
Heintz fruit is some of my favorite and for some reason, it’s normally easy for me to identify, this being no different. I always get an overload of guava with Heintz Chardonnays, like this one, on the nose. Big aromatics of roasted Meyer lemon and ripe tropical fruits. Oak isn’t a star here, as the acidity takes center stage. Sharp and focused down the middle. Apricot, underripe pineapple and lemon oil on the palate. 13.2 ABV. I know Littorai picks super early, so it’s impressive that they are able to get this beautiful amount of pure fruit.
I followed this over 2 days and day 1 was sharp acidity and led me to believe this needs another few years to integrate. Day 2, the acidity mellowed and the fruit really warmed and became very perfumed. I’d probably hold, but no harm in opening now if you have time to follow/enjoy it. — a month ago
Gorgeous, balanced wine. Strong backbone of acidity and tannins. Cherry and minerality. Absolutely love this wine!! — 20 days ago

Typical Sonoma coast Pinot Noir. Noise of fresh cherries and some strawberries but not overly jammy on the body. Nice drier finish with pleasant tannins — a month ago
Well structured, Pinot with depth. Enjoyed at Simon&the whale — 2 months ago
