International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 144

($90) Medium red. Compelling perfume of raspberry, candied cherry, rose oil and minerals. Buoyant red berry flavors boast impressive depth and are complicated by suave cola and sassafras qualities. Becomes smokier with air and finishes with excellent clarity, cling and nervy persistence. This is a blend of Pommard and Calera clones.

The seductive, soft 2006 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard does not reveal the complexity of the two previous 2005s. It offers plenty of red and black fruits intermixed with earth and spice.

Dark red. Almost black. Smooth. Black currant. Herbs and classic vegetal notes linger on the finish. Mild Dark chocolate

The seductive, soft 2006 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard does not reveal the complexity of the two previous 2005s. It offers plenty of red and black fruits intermixed with earth and spice. 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.

Great Cali pinot - ripe raspberries, cherries, and supple smooth finish.
