  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    Aromas of spice, wilted rose, strawberry and plum are complex, delicate and medium-weight in this well-balanced red, with a dash of mineral and blueberry flavors on the finish. Drink now through 2017. 188 cases made.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    (from a sandstone knoll owned by Milla Handley): Moderately saturated medium red. Bright aromas of raspberry, currant, orange peel and licorice, plus a whiff of cherry liqueur. Supple, dusty and uncompromisingly dry, with slightly jammy cherry and plum flavors. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins. Lemon destemmed this fruit 100% as the stems don't ripen as well here; and the wine always has a high pH, he adds.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

    The 2009 Pinot Noir Roman boasts incredible depth and richness. Black cherries, exotic spices, licorice and violets flow from this highly expressive, juicy Pinot. Layers of fruit build effortlessly to the long, resonant finish. The Roman stands out for its fleshy, extroverted fruit.

  • 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.
