2000 Kistler Occidental Vineyard Cuvee Elizabeth Pinot Noir - 99 Pts!
The 2000 Pinot Noir Occidental Vineyard Cuvee Elizabeth is profound. An opaque purple color is followed by gorgeous aromas of white flowers minerals black raspberries cherries and toast. It is slightly tight from high tannin and boasts layers of flavor astonishing purity as well as fruit intensity and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. This majestic Pinot Noir is one of the most remarkable New World Pinots I have ever tasted. It can easily compete with the most profound French Burgundies. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2015. Bravo! Steve Kistler and his sidekick Mark Bixler feel that the key to making top quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in 2000 an extremely cold year with higher acids was patience. Some years the flavors come early and in other years they are much later. RP
