- 93 Punkte VINOUS Antonio Galloni: "The 2013 Pinot Noir The Haven Vineyard Estate has come together nicely over the last year. This is one of the richer, deeper wines in the range. Hints of dried flowers, sage, mint and licorice add lovely shades of nuance. Today, the fruit is much more generous than it was a year ago, but there is no escaping the mid-weight style of the vintage."
- 17+ Punkte JANCIS ROBINSON: "Refined cranberry fruit with lovely crunch and delicacy. Perfumed finish, just a touch of stemmy freshness on the length."

|Lage/Bezeichnung:||The Haven Vineyard|
|Lage:||The Haven Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast AVA, estate parcels This site lies northwest of the town of Occidental on the south shoulder of a 1200? ridge. The soils are extremely diverse including shales, sandstones, greenstone (undersea volcanic uplifted) and Yorkville series. All three were planted in 2001. This is usually the latest ripening site in the Littorai family. The Haven contains approximately 40 different rootstock and clonal combinations within a very small 4 acre vineyard. It is farmed using agroecological and biodynamic methods but is not certified. (www.littorai.com)|

|Notizen des Weinguts:||While some of the 2013s jump out of the glass with aromatic complexity, the Haven is dark and brooding. Cough drop, green herbs, seaweed, black pepper, wet rock, moss, forest floor. This is a very concentrated 2013 with great density, richness and acidity. While some of our bottlings are on the softer, rounder end of the spectrum and others are more defined by tannins, the Haven is unique in that it balances all parts of the taste spectrum. It is rich, yet there is great tannin definition. It has great energy because of the excellent acidity yet it is never tart. This will become a very special bottle with time.|
