Littorai Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2021

All the sources for the Littorai Sonoma Coast regional Pinot Noir are exceptional sites worthy of vineyard designation in their own right. 36% of the final blend comes from Richard Ranch in Anapolis on the northern end of the Sonoma Coast, 10% is from Balinard Vineyard in the western hills of Sebastopol. 33% is from press wines of vineyard designate lots: Hirsh, Mays Canyon, The Pivot, The Haven and Thieriot vineyards. All of the sites are farmed using organic and bio-dynamic methods. The proximity to the ocean and morning fog moderates the temperature in the vineyards, producing wines of superb elegance. At the winery, the organically produced grapes were fermented at controlled temperatures before being matured for 10 months in French oak (19% new) prior to bottling unfined and unfiltered. Vibrant, youthful tones of cherry, huckleberry, and rhubarb as well as flint and graphite. This is a rich wine; however, it remains very primary and has high acidity. With time it’s secondary character will become more expressive, but the primary aromas are already hypnotic. Sonoma Coast offers a glimpse of the depth, complexity, and general quality of the 2021 vintage.
