Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(+?)

(13.8% alcohol; from vines planted in 2003): Good full red. Musky, slightly reduced aromas of redcurrant, plum, mocha, black tea, iron and tobacco, plus a whiff of rhubarb and pomegranate. Then supple, fleshy and smooth, with a restrained sweetness to the flavors of crunchy berries, spices and tea. Very distinctive wine, at once broad and weightless. With its peppery, spicy aftertaste, this conveys a strong whole-cluster character.

Site Blog: The Wine Forum Outstanding, best Cali Pinot I have had in a while. The nose is classic with earth, red fruits, antique perfume and subtle spice. The palate is exceptionally balanced, medium bodied , silky tannins with a clean and precise finish. #ipob #biodynamic #organic #sonomacoast

About This Producer


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.
