DescriptionKistler Cuvee Catherine Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast, USA 2004
ROBERT PARKERThe 2004 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Catherine Occidental Station boasts a glorious dark ruby/purple-tinged color as well as an extraordinary nose reminiscent of a Comte de Vogue Musigny Vieilles Vignes. Aromas of crushed rocks, violets, raspberries, sweet cherries, and a distinctive terroir character are present in this full-bodied effort. With oodles of vivacious fruit as well as wonderful freshness and palate penetration, this superb Pinot Noir should drink well for 10-12 years. Moreover, there are 1,000 cases.
VINOUSDark violet. Intensely aromatic nose offers powerful blackberry and plum compote aromas. Very fresh in the mouth (the pH is 3.4, Kistler says), with vibrant red and dark berry flavors and taut minerality. Dry, focused and pure on the finish, with outstanding persistence and lingering dark berry flavors. Serious pinot: a great marriage of sweet fruit and soil tones.
WINE SPECTATORAustere, with a flinty, mineral edge to the vivid berry, floral and subtle earth notes, gaining complexity and depth on the finish. Drink now through 2011. 1,032 cases made.
