  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    (13.7% alcohol): Good healthy dark red. Wild raspberry liqueur, black tea and graphite on the nose, plus a suggestion of candied fruits. Silky-smooth but with terrific verve contributing to an impression of weightlessness. Lovely saline complexity to the flavors of raspberry, cola and spice. Most impressive today on the very long, rising, firmly tannic finish.

    The 2009 Pinot Noir Hirsch is one of the bigger wines in this lineup of 2009 Pinots. Sweet black cherries, tar, licorice, smoke and violets saturate the palate in this highly expressive, generous Pinot. A long, seamless finish rounds out this superb, pedigreed Pinot. This is a dazzling effort. Wow!

  • 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.
