It's dense purple hue is followed by incredibly pure notes of black raspberries, mulberries, pine forest, spring flowers, and an almost iodine/seaside-like salinity and minerality. Medium to full-bodied, with bright acidity, it’s an energetic, racy yet brilliantly balanced. This is another thrilling wine from Steve Kistler and family.

A very pretty and expressive wine. Bright floral notes and red-toned fruits grace this supple, racy Pinot from Occidental. Hints of Asian spice and blood orange add pretty, exotic overtones. Done with fully destemmed fruit, but it has a very attractive savory quality. This is such a classy and restrained Pinot, but there is plenty of density and weight as well. I can't wait to see how it ages. 

Antonio Galloni, Vinous.

Medium ruby, has deep aromas of cranberry sauce, blood orange peel, charcuterie, saline, tar and licorice. In the mouth, it’s medium-bodied while still maintaining its pleasant core of bitterness. It has a crunchy, fresh fruit character with bright bitter sparks, a grainy frame and great freshness, finishing long and mineral driven.
