Oh my glorious crystalline beauty, replete with raspberry and pomegranate zip touched by herbs and cedar. Long, fine, and sultry, this is only just beginning its journey to greatness. @littoraiwine, I kneel in supplication.

Always a treat - even the regional bottlings show grace, elegance and complexity!

Slightly off bottle and tastes a bit old. Some dark fruit showing and herbs and savory but not as good as other bottles from Littori 2004.

Not as complex as a Littorai single vineyard but raspberry, sweet cherry, spice, and a white pepper. Over delivered for the entry wine. Very good.

Just got this today. It’s everything I love about how Littorai makes the Sonoma Coast Pinot. Approachable now, will improve with time.
