Kistler Bodega Headlands Cuvée Elizabeth Pinot Noir 2004

Deep, sappy, brooding nose featuring black fruits, violet, minerals, and gun-metal. Large-scaled but elegant, with a captivating lightness of touch. Compelling inner-mouth perfume and persistence. A wine of considerable refinement and pronounced soil character. Delicious now.

Wine AdvocateBordering on perfection, the 2004 Pinot Noir Bodega Headlands (from Kistler's new vineyard planted on the Sonoma Coast) offers up sweet plum, forest floor, and violet scents along with a La Tache-like, ethereal, floral, and black raspberry-like character. This prodigious, deep ruby/purple-colored Pinot possesses fabulous concentration as well as a layered, multidimensional palate, wonderful fruit, sweet tannin, and good acidity. It should age beautifully for 10-12 years.
