2008 Littorai The Pivot Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., $60. From young vines planted on the Littorai Estate property. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. The alluring aromas black cherries and raspberries with a hint of toasty oak sends a welcoming message. Light in intensity but pleasing with flavors of cherries, red berries and oak-derived coffee. Demure and very approachable now, with silky tannins and a good grip of acidity that frames the fruit and lifts the crisp finish. I would drink this early on. Good.
