Description2009 Kistler 'Cuvee Elizabeth' Bodega Headlands Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast, USA
ANTONIO GALLONIBoth 2009 Pinots are striking. The Pinot Noir Silver Belt Vineyard Cuvée Natalie is lifted, savory and aromatic, while the Bodega Headlands Vineyard Cuvée Elizabeth is more overt and fruit-driven in style. Both wines remain quite primary, though, so readers who prefer more tertiary nuances will want to give the 2009s a few more years in the cellar. I am down to my last few bottles, and hope to have the patience to wait for the wines to enter their sweet spot.
WINE SPECTATORAustere, with a pleasant briny, flinty, oyster shell texture. Underneath, there's trim ripe berry flavors that gain richness and dimension. Quite tannic. Needs time. A strikingly distinctive Kistler. Best from 2013 through 2023.
