Kistler Cuvée Catherine Pinot Noir 1998

SKU C0128


Our goal in crafting our Pinot Noirs is to capture the elusive Pinot character expressed in each of our exceptional coastal sites. We strive to produce elegant, harmonious wines which are impressive for their purity, balance, and lingering perfume. From these sites there is a progression of color and length of character as we move towards the coast.

Wine AdvocateThe dense ruby/purple-colored 1998 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Catherine displays a spectacular floral, black raspberry, and cherry-scented nose. Compelling fruit purity offers jammy cherry, strawberry, and smoky aromas with hints of violets (or is it lilacs?). Full body, fine underlying acidity, and sweet tannin make for a sumptuous wine. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2012. (release date 3/01)
