Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 94

Vivid red. Drop-dead gorgeous perfume of raspberry preserves, Asian spices and fresh rose, with a deeper suggestion of violet. Sappy, penetrating and pure, with strikingly intense red fruit flavors underpinned by tangy minerality. Finishes with resonating spiciness and a lingering floral note. This wine's clarity is striking.

The 2008 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard exhibits lots of wild berry fruit intermixed with graphite, herb and spring flower notes in its medium-bodied, luscious style. The 2008 is more open-knit and richer than the 2009 from this site.

Offers a trim, complex beam of intense dark berry fruit, which joins a mix of wild berry and raspberry notes. Medium- to full-bodied, showing good acidity and a clean, fruity finish. Drink now through 2019.
