  • Burghound | Rating: 89

    A ripe and spicy nose of both red and dark berry fruit, plum and an herbal nuance leads to rich, round and suave medium weight plus flavors that possess good mid-palate density as well as excellent length. Like the '08 Natalie, the finish also displays a mild edginess but overall, this is very good.

    Glass-staining ruby. Highly perfumed, precise aromas of cherry, blackberry, licorice, herbs and violet; much darker in character than the preceding wines. Sweet and firm on entry, then fresh and aromatic in the mouth, with strong cherry and dark berry fruit supported by a firm spine of minerality. Finishes sweet and long. This is built to age.

    The backward, tight, but super-rich 2008 Pinot Noir Occidental Station Cuvee Catherine has put on considerable weight over the last year. Abundant black raspberry, black cherry, blueberry, spring flower and foresty notes intertwined with a touch of oak in the background emerge from this prodigious Pinot Noir. Enjoy it over the next decade or more.
