International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 84

Dark red. Sappy, primal aromas of raspberry, orange rind, cherry cola, smoked meat, tarry oak and a pungent kernel of spice. Rich and deep, with maraschino cherry and dark berry flavors. A pinot with an impressive large structure; very long on the finish but the tannins are a bit elevated in the early going. Offers considerable potential.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 120

The 1996 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard exhibits a Vosne-Romanee/Richebourg-like violet, black cherry, and smoky-scented nose of considerable intensity. Full-bodied, with superb richness, admirable delineation, a lush, concentrated mid-palate, and black cherry, earthy notes in the spicy finish, this is another impressive, super-concentrated Pinot Noir with both complexity and equilibrium. It should drink well for a decade.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Deliciously rich and focused, with a bright core of ripe plum, black cherry, anise, cedar and spice. Impressively gains nuance and complexity on the finish, where the flavors sail on. 273 cases made.
