2018 Littorai Pinot Noir BA Thieriot Vineyard Sonoma Coast
Region: Sonoma Coast
Like smelling a deep and dark well of water high up in the mountains. Don’t ask me what that means, it was the image that came to my mind at our last blind tasting before bottling...candied notes, blackberry, rhubarb, pomegranate, blueberry, coffee bean, Asian spices, soy, hoisin, black pepper. This is a very fresh, rich, complete and hedonistic wine with pronounced acidity and is very long and understated, like dappled sunlight on a cool, midsummer afternoon. Formidable.
