2002 Kistler Occidental Vineyard Cuvee Elizabeth Pinot - 95 Pts!
Kistler's daughter gets her name on the 250-case lot of 2002 Pinot Noir Occidental Vineyard Cuvee Elizabeth. This wine is spectacular and while I don't like to choose between daughters it gets a slight nod over the Cuvee Catherine because it just seems to have a few more layers of flavor crammed into its medium to full-bodied personality. Wonderfully floral raspberry and kirsch notes emerge from this wine which also shows a touch of toast some crushed stony rocky notes and beautiful texture and vibrant acidity. I wouldn't be surprised to see this wine age effortlessly for 10-15 years. It is certainly a terrific Pinot Noir which as I said last year comes across as California's Musigny. RP
