Winemaker's Notes

A concentrated wine, with impressive energy to its red and black fruit flavors and subtle earth tones.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard bursts from the glass with an exotic array of sweet red fruit, flowers, licorice and spices. It is a dazzling, totally beguiling wine that impresses for its sheer grace and classiness. A subtle yet precise saline-infused finish leaves a lasting impression. This is the most approachable and complete of the 2009 Kistler Pinots."
95 Points

"Rich and graceful, with a luxurious beam of blueberry, blackberry and wild berry fruit that's tight-knit and structured, with a pleasant fresh earth and spicy underbrush presence."
93 Points

"Vivid ruby-red. Deeply pitched dark berry and cherry aromas are complicated by notes of licorice, woodsmoke and dark chocolate. Lush and weighty on entry, then fresher and more lithe in the mid-palate, offering intense black raspberry and candied violet flavors with a touch of black tea. The spicy finish offers very good clarity and cling."
