THE BEST OF THE BEST AND STILL AT THE TOP OF THEIR GAME

"The 2015 Pinot Noir Silver Belt Cuvée Natalie is the most reticent and tightly wound of the three 2015 Kistler Pinots I tasted. Savory herbs, red-toned fruit, mint, orange peel and a touch of whole cluster savoriness give the 2015 a fine, sculpted feel that is hard to describe with words. Bright saline notes punctuate this vivid, exceptionally beautiful Pinot. For the first time the Cuvée Natalie has a touch of whole clusters." (VM)

Winery Notes:
In style, more red fruits than black. Pure, discrete aromas of raspberry and red currant combined with complex soil tones. A full, seamless wine showing impeccable early balance. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and subtle rising length.
