International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 144

($90) Vivid red. Strikingly vibrant aromas of red berries, blood orange, flowers and minerals reminded me of a suave Chambolle-Musigny. Fleshy, succulent strawberry and raspberry preserve flavors are enlivened by zesty minerality and given depth by a slow-building cola quality. Becomes more tangy as well as more powerful on the finish, which leaves fresh redcurrant and raspberry notes behind. This absolutely refused to let go of my palate. One of the most memorable wines of my North Coast tastings this year, and I tried a lot.

The dark ruby/purple-hued 2006 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Catherine Occidental Station offers notes of raspberries, kirsch, plums, Allspice, and damp forest. Although full-bodied with excellent fruit and richness, I do not believe it will be as superb as the 2005.

The dark ruby/purple-hued 2006 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Catherine Occidental Station offers notes of raspberries, kirsch, plums, Allspice, and damp forest. Although full-bodied with excellent fruit and richness, I do not believe it will be as superb as the 2005. Another impressive group of Chardonnays from Steve Kistler, these 2006s are unmistakably Burgundian in their aromatics, textures, and flavor profiles. Kistler has given up on the highly fashionable Dijon clones, relying on old California clones, primarily old Wente selections. He feels the same about Pinot Noir, using the Calera and other older California clones rather than the Dijon selections.
