  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($65) Good deep red with ruby highlights. Deep aromas of black raspberry, espresso, smoky tea and exotic spices. Dense, broad and classically dry on entry, then rich and powerful in the middle palate, in a rather muscular style in the context of this set of pinots. Firm acidity gives shape to the red fruit and brown spice flavors. (I would have guessed this was vinified with some whole clusters, but it wasn't.) Finishes with solid, building tannins. Give this three or four three years in the cellar.

    Very tightly wound, dry and loamy, with a chalky edge to the fruit, which turns juicy on the long finish. Ends with a touch of tar.

  • 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.
