- 94+ Punkte VINOUS Antonio Galloni: "Littorai's 2016 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard is gorgeous, but it also is going to need quite a bit of time to come together, as the tannins are quite piercing at this early stage. Chalk, white pepper, mint, blood orange and red berry fruit give the Hirsch its distinctive aromatic signatures. As promising as the 2016 is, there is not much pleasure to be found today. Readers should plan on being patient."
- 96 Punkte JEB DUNNUCK: "From a site located in the northern part of the Sonoma Coast, the sensational 2016 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard sports a medium ruby color as well as classic dried red fruits, forest floor, spice, and subtle marine/seaside notes. It?s medium-bodied, as elegant and classy as they come, and is going to evolve beautifully."
- 96 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "Very attractive, complex, spice and sous bois-scented nose with bright red cherries and blueberries. There?s a very silky mid-palate that carries a smooth, fleshy and long array of layered red cherries and pastry-like sheets of tannins. Drink or hold."
