2011 Occidental (Kistler) "Occidental Station - Cuvee Catherine" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1155421 97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2011 Pinot Noir Occidental Station Cuvée Catherine is a real stunner. Still incredibly primary, the 2011 is built on a serious core of fruit. Voluptuous yet medium in body, the 2011 impresses for its balance and sheer purity. The 2011 has developed quite a bit since I last tasted it, but the style remains one of fruit density. Readers should give the 2011 another year or two in bottle. What a fabulous wine this is. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2014)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby. A heady, complex bouquet evokes black raspberry and boysenberry preserves, smoky Indian spices and cola. Lush, palate-staining dark berry fruit flavors show liqueur-like depth and power, with notes of star anise and candied flowers adding complexity and lift. The sweet, seamless finish goes on and on, leaving spicecake, mineral and rose pastille notes behind. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2011 Pinot Noir Occidental Station Cuvee Catherine reminded me of a grand cru Musigny from Burgundy. Elegant floral, raspberry, red and black cherry, forest floor and crushed rock aromas soar from the glass of this medium-bodied, beautifully knit, surprisingly concentrated Pinot. Made from yields of no more than one ton of fruit per acre, the intensity and depth of flavor were easy to obtain. It should drink well for 8-12+ years. Drink through 2025.
