2017 Occidental "Bodegas Headlands - Cuvée Elizabeth" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1458322 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark One of my favorites in the lineup (but we are splitting hairs), the 2017 Pinot Noir Bodega Headlands ineyard Cuvee Elizabeth comes from the estate vineyard located around the estate, lying at 400 to 750 feet in elevation. Mostly potential at this point, its dense purple hue is followed by incredibly pure notes of black raspberries, mulberries, pine forest, spring flowers, and an almost iodine/seaside-like salinity and minerality. Medium to full-bodied, with bright acidity, it’s an energetic, racy yet brilliantly balanced, lengthy Pinot Noir that’s going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for a decade. This is another thrilling wine from Steve Kistler and family. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Pinot Noir Bodega Headlands Cuvée Elizabeth is a very pretty and expressive wine. Bright floral notes and red-toned fruits grace this supple, racy Pinot from Occidental. Hints of Asian spice and blood orange add pretty, exotic overtones. The 2017 was done with fully destemmed fruit, but it has a very attractive savory quality. This is such a classy and restrained Pinot, but there is plenty of density and weight as well. I can't wait to see how it ages. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Bodega Headlands Cuvée Elizabeth has deep aromas of cranberry sauce, blood orange peel, charcuterie, saline, tar and licorice. In the mouth, it’s medium-bodied with a bit more fruity flesh than its 2016 counterpart while still maintaining its pleasant core of bitterness. It has a crunchy, fresh fruit character with bright bitter sparks, a grainy frame and great freshness, finishing long and mineral driven. (ER) Inner quote mark (7/2020)
