    Littorai's 2011 Pinot Noir The Pivot Estate Vineyard boasts striking inner perfume and sweetness to back up a solid yet refined core of fruit. A burst of Chambolle-like sweetness punctuates the finish. In 2011, the Pivot was made with 10% whole clusters, on the low side for Littorai. I am not sure I own the vocabulary to describe just how beautiful the Pivot is in 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2023.

    (vinified with 25% whole clusters): Good dark red. Aromas of crushed raspberry, black cherry and tree bark. At once supple and bright, with a fine-grained texture to its flavors of black tea and underbrush. Suave and light on its feet, finishing with a spicy quality and lovely subtle persistence. This has just 13% alcohol.

  • 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.
