Kistler-Occidental Freestone Pinot Noir 2016
Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Freestone-Occidental has super intense notes of redcurrants, black raspberries, black cherries and violets with hints of dark chocolate, cinnamon stick and smoked meats plus a waft of underbrush. Wonderfully elegant in the mouth with vibrant black and red fruits, earth and savory layers, it has a firm frame of finely grained tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long with an exciting herbal lift. Around 2,000 cases were produced.
