WTN: Coasting

2012 Littorai Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast - USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast (8/18/2018)
Pop and pour for Pinot Noir Day, and it was a delicious showing.

The wine is only light to medium bodied, but it shows a lot of flavor. The focus is red berry, but there’s a touch of citrus and light earthy tones. It’s bright and refreshing, carries its light tannins well, and the finish is very long and fresh. This is an elegant Pinot Noir that seems to have several more years to reach maturity.

I quite enjoy lighter bodied pinots where a lot of people I know think of them as flawed, or at least lesser. I sometimes think that I'd end up preferring them were there enough available.
