Winery Notes:
The source for our Cuvee Catherine Pinot Noir since 2005. Heading towards the coast, this vineyard is bordered on three sides by stands of redwoods. Striking red sandstone soils combine with a strong maritime influence to produce tightly wound, purple wines brimming with cassis, violet and minerals. A wine which combines finesse with power.

Vivid purple. Intensely perfumed aromas of blackberry, violet, graphite and earth. A vibrant, energetic wine with palette-staining black and blue fruit character. Strikingly elegant and precise for such a concentrated wine. Finishes with a firm edge of minerality. Perhaps our most age-worthy Cuvée Catherine to date. Decant and enjoy.

2009 Occidental Station Cuvée Catherine Pinot Noir
Antonio Galloni
The Wine Advocate
The 2009 Pinot Noir Occidental Station Cuvee Catherine is flat-out beautiful. All of the elements are in the right place in this majestic, towering Pinot. Layers of fruit emerge gracefully in a wine that seems to never end. The finest, silkiest of tannins frame the fruit through to the exceptional, sensual finish. This kaleidoscopic, marvelously complete wine is a stunning effort from Steve Kistler and his team. The wine continues to open up in the glass in a fabulous display of class and elegance. I can hardly wait to own this extraordinary Pinot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021.
