"The 2016 Pinot Noir Occidental Station is another stand out in this range. High-toned, aromatically expressive and silky, the 2016 is incredibly harmonious. Today, the Occidental Station is the most open-knit and sensual of the wines, which makes it easier to drink on the earlier side. Silky tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal. The inclusion of 25% whole clusters adds nuance throughout." (VM)

Winery Notes:
Deeply-pitched aromas of purple fruits, graphite and cassis. A stony minerality energizes and elevates the palate, which features an impressive array of red and black fruit flavors. Delivers great intensity and concentration without giving any impression of weight. Finishes vibrant and long with a delicate violet and blackcurrant perfume. -SK
