Ratings Pedigree:

Critical Acclaim

"Complex, riveting aromas of dusty berry, anise and wild blackberry carry over to the palate in a tight, concentrated manner, offering great density, richness and complexity. Finishes with a return to the dusty berry flavors and firm tannins."
94 Points

"Medium red-ruby. Pretty, nuanced nose combines raspberry, red cherry, flowers, earth and mint. At once dense and juicy, with lively raspberry and floral flavors complemented but not dominated by spicy oak. This should develop more complexity with bottle aging, but it's already captivating today thanks to its sappy freshness. Finishes very long and firmly tannic, with lingering raspberry and black cherry flavors. There are 1,500 cases of this wine, making it by far Kistler's largest cuvee of pinot noir.
Rating: 92(+?)"
