95James Suckling

Very attractive, fresh red-cherry and raspberry aromas here. Plenty of pristine, fine, red-floral perfume and stony nuances, too. Very pure...with a core of very attractive, fresh red cherries and a web of super fine, long and silky tannins. This has striking acidity with salient and expansive, fresh red fruit lighting up the finish.

17Jancis Robinson

Intense, layered, subtle nose. Very sweet and rich fruit inside a briary corset. Hedonistic and quite bumptious and insistently fruity on the palate... Big and bold.



Littorai was founded in 1993 by Heidi and Ted Lemon in western Sonoma County. Ted Lemon earned an enology degree from the Universite de Dijon and worked at prestigious wineries in Burgundy in the early 1980s. In California he was founding winemaker at Chateau Woltner on Howell Mountain. Littorai makes Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast and the Russian River. It also makes Chardonnays.

Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
