Kistler Vineyard Cuvée Catherine Pinot Noir 1995
|Appellation||Russian River Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe 1995 Pinot Noir Estate Cuvee Catherine is one of the most remarkable Pinot Noirs I have tasted from California. The opaque ruby/purple color and sweet nose of black fruits, smoked meat, and minerals are followed by a wine of exceptional richness, purity, and delineation. It is still backward and closed, but wow, what concentration, intensity, and overall balance. Might not this wine prove to be an historical effort?
