K&L Notes

Previously labeled "Sonoma Coast," this wine now carries the name Freestone-Occidental to more accurately reflect its place of origin. The fruit in this Pinot Noir is from their Bodega Headlands, Occidental Station, and Bodega Ridge vineyards. Each vineyard block is fermented separately in two to four ton increments in order to capture individual site character. The wine goes into bottle after 14 months in barrel un-fined and unfiltered with a minimum level of SO2.

    Here's a rare opportunity to get your hands on some truly spectacular, world-class Pinot Noir from one of the world's most heralded estates. Steve Kistler's Occidental Winery is a fairly new project with the sole focus of producing the highest quality Pinot Noir in California. The new 2018 release is simply stunning. Beautifully focused, elegant, refined Pinot Noir that is flat out delicious. This wine really shows the precision and energy of the vintage with its high-toned floral aromatics and pristine forest berry fruits interwoven with subtle woodsy spices. Reminds me of top flight Volnay, very aromatic, pure, finessed. We've been personally recommending this wine to our customers since its release but the recent publication of two huge scores from The Wine Advocate and Vinous prompted us to take as much as we could get and sharpen the pencil on the price.
