  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    ($60) Medium red, a bit pale at the rim. Less expressive on the nose than the Hirsch, offering notes of blueberry, raspberry and flowers. Supple in texture but a bit youthfully subdued, currently showing limited lift and nuance. The dark fruit flavors are framed by sound acidity, though. Lemon noted that this wine was picked later; the Hirsch and Mays Canyon came in before the |pause.| I suspect this is better than it?s showing today.

    The 2007 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard is a blend of the newer Dijon clones and the older California selections from Swan and Pommard. This sexy, light ruby-hued, medium-bodied Pinot offers fresh boysenberry, cherry and pomegranate notes. It is reminiscent of a riper, richer version of a French premier cru from the Cote de Beaune. Enjoy it over the next 5-6 years.

  • From the Latin for "coasts," the Littorai name is a reminder that wine, "this noblest agricultural product, arises from the weave of place (vineyard), time (vintage), and man." This recognition, combined with Ted Lemon's education and training in winemaking in France, result in highly sought-after California Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Lemon's winemaking philosophy is influenced heavily by his time at the Universite de Bourgogne, where he earned a degree in Enology, as well as his apprenticeships at estates such as Domaine Dujac, Roumier, and Bruno Clair. With his wife Heidi, Lemon has produced wines that honestly express exceptional sites on the Sonoma Coast, Russian River, and Anderson Valley since 1993.
