A new wine in this range, the 2016 Pinot Noir Running Fence Vineyard Cuvée Catherine is sourced from Steve Kistler's Bodega Ridge estate, where the Occidental winery is located. Blood orange, red raspberry, mint, dried flowers and star anise are all laced together in this very pretty, expressive Pinot Noir. The 2016 is translucent and wonderfully energetic at the outset, but then gains volume with time in the glass. It is another gorgeous and highly nuanced wine in the range. (AG)
This is the first wine from the Running Fence vineyard. The 2016 Pinot Noir Running Fence Vineyard Cuvée Catherine has a pale to medium ruby-purple color and a nose of cranberry, black cherries, rhubarb and pomegranate liqueur with hints of bergamot leaves, woodsmoke, dusty earth, stone and flowers. Light to medium-bodied, it has a great core of earth and floral-tinged fruit with a backbone of grainy tannins and lip-smacking acidity, finishing long and juicy with a saline touch. (EB)
