Cuvée Catherine Occidental Station Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

Best Pinot Noir that I have tasted this year! Awesome grape juice. Went well with the signature toro plate at Morimoto’s in Napa. — 24 days ago

Cuvée Catherine Occidental Station Vineyard Pinot Noir 2005

Wednesday Wine Committee hosted by Dan. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. Tasted blind as usual.

Very ripe and juicy. It totally reminded me of a field blend from Carlisle. Reigns it in before going full blown VA style. Surprised this was Kistler Pinot. Squeezed strawberries, raspberries and blackberries in a glass with Mexican vanilla and a touch of cedar. Zero acidity. Drink up.

Pisoni Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

I bought this after reading princeofpinot review; my first experience with this wine. Lately I have been drinking Kistler/ Occidental, Marcassin, Aubert and a few random Calera pinots and the Suduri was a bit different in character; seemed more burgundian in style. Was elegant, but less fruit forward than Kistler et.al , more restrained? Reminded me of a few Rochhioli West Blocks and early Williams Selyem from years gone by. A very nice pinot at any price point and I wish I had more of it. — 4 years ago

Cuvée Elizabeth Bodega Headlands Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Brighter acidity than expected with pleasing notes of blood orange, plus a great nose of damp forest floor and mushrooms. After 30 minutes or so this developed nice depth and complexity that danced on the tongue. — 2 months ago

After having Bevan Cellar SB we had to make this a BEVAN NIGHT! Did it Done it! Wow we were not disappointed this 1 st time for me Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2013 rivals my Kistler Occidental and J Rochioli Single vineyard Pinots! WOW! Where did Mr Bevan come from . I was lucky to buy 2 bottles of this Awesome Wine. I should search out and buy more Before I post this But this has rich full body, layers of fruit and bright acidity with just the right suppleness. TO Many Words... Pork Loin yes (was great) wine was better! Very Impressive ! Give this 96-97 Rating now and with 2-3 years of bottle age who knows 99-100 maybe??? You decide .

Occidental Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2014

Garnet in the glass with cherries, orange rind, and licorice on the nose - the palate delivers gobs of red fruit and is quite viscous for a Pinot - this was really lovely. — a year ago
