  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

    The 2010 Pinot Noir Silver Belt Cuvee Natalie is a pretty, aromatic wine endowed with gorgeous lift and a gracious personality, with none of the wilder notes found in the Kistler Vineyard. The Cuvee Natalie is quite delicate, at times even a bit frail, but it nevertheless impresses with its superb purity and fine overall balance. There is a sense of energy in the Cuvee Natalie that is highly appealing. My impression is that the Cuvee Natalie is not built for the long haul, but it will drink nicely for at least the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.

    A firm, intense and vibrant red, with zesty wild berry and raspberry notes. Pure, young and tightly strung, this needs time to develop. Ends with gripping tannins.

  • California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
