($90) Deep ruby. Explosive perfumed aromas of black raspberry, cassis, mocha, tarragon and fresh rose. Intense dark fruit flavors are surprisingly lithe and admirably precise. Mineral and floral pastille character builds dramatically with air and carries through a long, strikingly sappy finish.

The 2005 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Catherine Occidental Station boasts a dark ruby/purple-tinged color as well as gorgeous aromas reminiscent of a DRC Grands Echezeaux. Spring flower, blueberry, raspberry, cherry, and forest floor aromas soar from the glass of this medium to full-bodied Pinot. With superb finesse, elegance, and the grace of a ballerina, this beauty can be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years.
