2015 Kistler "Laguna Ridge Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1313700 98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Pinot Noir Laguna Ridge (formerly Kistler Vineyard) is just as riveting from bottle as it was from tank. Inky, deep and explosive, the 2015 hits the palate with a rush of blue/purplish fruit, creme de cassis, lavender, menthol, game, white flowers and incense. Vivid and spectacularly rich, this full-throttle Pinot has so much to offer. The tannins need time to soften, but all the elements are in the right place. A flourish of floral and savory notes add the closing layers of complexity. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a wine of great concentration and density that's also savory and earthy. Hearty, heady violet-floral aromatics make for a grand entry into explosively succulent wild strawberry flavor and supple texture. The tannins are robust and rounded and there's a delicate layering of white and black pepper that dominates on the finish. *Cellar Selection* (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2018)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Wow! That was my first reaction to this long, layered very, very cherry-toned, succulent Pinot Noir. It was picked at quite low sugar levels and is only 13.9% alcohol. The ridge-top vineyard with vines planted on sandstone has been one of Kistler’s sources of Pinot since 2006. It’s juicier and more lifted than Cuvee Natalie. (EM) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Laguna Ridge Vineyard is a little closed to begin, revealing (with plenty of coaxing) beautiful redcurrants, Bing cherries, wild blueberries and black raspberries scents with touches of fragrant moss, underbrush and fungi. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers a wonderful intensity of blue and black fruits with a taut yet ripe, finely grained texture and a long earthy finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (6/2018)
