2013 Occidental (Kistler) "SWK Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1247595 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 Pinot Noir SWK Vineyard is the most tannic and structured of these Pinots from Occidental. As such, it is going to need at least a few years in bottle to unwind. Beams of chalky tannin underpin a deeply expressive Pinot endowed with intensely mineral and savory overtones. Vivid and beautifully sculpted throughout, the 2013 is impressive, even in the early going. (AG) 96+ Inner quote mark (2/2016)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A charming expression of vibrant, delicate Pinot Noir, with juicy acidity and supple blackberry, plum and wild berry flavors that subtly reverberate. Ends with a long, pure finish. (JL) Inner quote mark (9/2016)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Pinot Noir SWK Vineyard, is 100% destemmed, ripe but more restrained, spicy and well-made, with good upside, but needs another 1-2 years of bottle age. Steve Kistler’s personal project on the Sonoma Coast appears under the name Occidental Wines. He makes about 1,000 cases of these wines. These are all impressive and suggest a brilliant future for his three Pinot Noir vineyards. (RP) 90+ Steve Kistler’s personal project on the Sonoma Coast appears under the name Occidental Wines.
