The 'Les Larmes' (French for "tears") Anderson Valley Pinot Noir is designed for earlier drinking than Littorai's vineyard designate wines. It remains in oak for only 11 months. The percentage of new oak is lower, usually between 10% and 20% whereas the vineyard designates are aged in approximately 25% new oak.
'Les Larmes' is comprised of different parcels of single vineyard fruit. It combines the muscular tannins of the Sonoma Coast with the darker fruit tones of the Russian River.
