Tasting Notes

"It is easy to get excited about Kistler's Pinot Noirs.", remarked Robert Parker in 1998. "All are aged in 100% new oak, made in small lots (250-500 cases), and bottled with neither fining nor filtration. They are trying to keep the levels of SO2 to minimal dosages so the wines can be as expressive as possible. These Pinot Noirs can easily hold their own in blind tastings with the finest red Burgundies." More than a decade later, Parker's praise continues: "Kistler Vineyards, undeniably one of the world's finest winemaking estates, is run with passionate dedication to detail and quality by Steve Kistler and Mark Bixler. It is wines like these that keep an old critic like me inspired and energized." (12/2006). Pinotfile offers additional notes: "Winemakers Steve Kistler and Mark Bixler decided early on to direct their energies completely to vineyard management and winemaking, avoid the public eye, and let the quality of their wines speak for themselves...The Kistler style of Pinot Noir emphasizes deep color, big extraction, thick, meaty flavors, substantial tannins, and generous oak. The wines are the epitome of what has been termed 'Parkeresque,' in that they are big boned, unctuous, and hedonistic." (8/2010)
