Kistler Cuvée Natalie Silver Belt Vineyard Pinot Noir 2020
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
A beauty, with long, smoldering minerality running from start to finish, piercing the core of raspberry, black cherry and dark plum fruit along the way. Reveals extra black tea, incense and iris notes as well, with everything showing terrific focus and definition through the finish. Drink now through 2033. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 900 cases made.
The 2020 Pinot Noir Cuvee Natalie from the Silver Belt Vineyard is perfumed and floral with fresh raspberry, beet root, and cinnamon. The palate is pure, with fine tannins, ripe red berries, rosehip, and wooded spices. It is drinking well now or will drink nicely over the coming 10 years.
The 2020 Pinot Noir Silver Belt Vineyard Cuvee Natalie is laced with crushed raspberry fruit, mint, spice, blood orange, sweet pipe tobacco and incense. There are some hard edges, and the Natalie doesn't have the typical depth readers have come to expect here but all things considered, the 2020 is a fine succes for the year.
