2007 Kistler Bodega Headlands Cuvee Elizabeth Pinot Noir - 96-98 pts!
The Cuvee Cathleen is amazing stuff, only to be eclipsed by the 2007 Pinot Noir Cuvee Elizabeth Bodega Headlands. Sweet black raspberries, camphor, and forest floor notes intermixed with a cocktail of spring flowers all jump from the glass of this full-bodied, gorgeously proportioned, rich wine that is about as compelling as California Pinot Noir is capable of being. It has a Burgundy-like structure, but its great purity of fruit and dazzling texture and length are awesome. This wine should drink well young but hit its stride in 5-6 years and last for 15-20 years. If the scores seem slightly more conservative that in previous vintages, this probably reflects the vintage’s personality, which is more backward than the more evolved 2006s or fabulous 2005s, which have always shown brilliantly. Steve Kistler told me that in 2007, they only cropped 22 tons of Pinot Noir fruit from their 18 acres of Pinot vineyards. RP
