2004 Kistler Bodega Headlands Cuvee Elizabeth Pinot - 98 pts!

Kistler Vineyards is a wine producer in northern California's Sonoma County. Its considerable reputation is thanks largely to its robust, buttery Chardonnay wines, which have established Kistler as a cult winery since the 1980s.

The company was founded in 1978 by Steve Kistler and remains a family-owned and operated winery. It is a relatively small producer, making just 35,000 cases annually, much of which is sold through its significant mailing list. Kistler's focus is the Burgundy varieties, making 10 vineyard-designated Chardonnay wines and four designated Pinot Noir wines. 

One heritage Californian selection of Chardonnay planted across fifteen vineyards, from Carneros to Sonoma Valley, to the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast. From those sites we produce eleven vineyard designate Chardonnays. We are wholly dedicated to the ideal of wines of site. It’s an unparalleled approach in the new world.

Two heritage selections of Pinot Noir inform all of our Pinot Noirs. Originally hailing from a Grand Cru vineyard in Burgundy, we’ve been propagating these two selections for the last twenty-five years. They, like our Chardonnay clone are very low yielding, resulting in wines with a natural density and concentration of flavor, balanced by elegant natural acids and elevated aromatics.

Rating 98 RP - 2004 Kistler Bodega Headlands Cuvee Elizabeth Pinot - 98 pts! Bordering 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. Interestingly Steve Kistler planted this vineyard with the old Calera clone which is rumored to be a suitcase clone pulled out of the Domaine de la Romanee-Conti grand cru vineyards.
