Top Notes For
Alexander Littauer

Took a couple days for this wine to open up and to really start strutting its stuff. Vibrant, primary, dark cherry fruit tones meet pine forest, spice, and licorice nuances. With the extended aeration, an intriguing mineral note also developed. Svelte (12.8%), yet vivacious and intimating appealing future complexities. Would be fun try again in 8+ years.

Dynamic, complex and perfectly balanced. Rich earth and coco strawberry. The premier example of the 2010 deep end of Anderson Valley.

A bit tightwound. Very fresh, concentrated and long.

Nice brambly fruit, cherry with good minerality.

Rich nose of darker, ripe fruit then followed by a medium body, lively acidity, and balance. Balance is the key with this wine, nothing out of place, very complex flavors and aromas, a crescendo-ing mouthfeel with a long, elegant, satisfying finish.

Smokin good - refined nose teamed up with lively energy on the palate. Terrific balance and precision.

Top of the food chain as far as Copain Pinots go. Impressive, as are most of Wells Pinots.
