2016 Occidental "Occidental Station" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (Previously $160)

SKU #1397016 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Pinot Noir Occidental Station Vineyard is a more rounded, mouthfilling effort compared to the other cuvées (it also sees a touch of whole cluster) and is medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, and layered, with classic notes of forest floor, flowery spice, earth, and sweet black raspberry fruit. It has a wonderful finish, the purity of fruit that's common from this address, and the class to evolve for 10-15 years or more. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Steve Kistler says this is the warmest and most inland of his sites and that this is usually the first fruit to be picked. Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Occidental Station Vineyard opens with black tea leaf, saline, black cherry, dried rose petal, rhubarb, warm cranberries and a touch of smoke with black raspberries, warm earth and dried herbs hints. Light to medium-bodied, it packs in the savory fruits with focused intensity, framed by soft, fine-grained tannins and juicy freshness and finishing very long and layered.

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Pinot Noir Occidental Station is another stand out in this range. High-toned, aromatically expressive and silky, the 2016 is incredibly harmonious. Today, the Occidental Station is the most open-knit and sensual of the wines, which makes it easier to drink on the earlier side. Silky tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal. The inclusion of 25% whole clusters adds nuance throughout. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)
