2014 Pinot Noir Silver Belt Vineyard Cuvée NatalieJoin To Purchase
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
The Silver Belt Cuvée Natalie Pinot Noir has more Swan clone in it than the Kistler Vineyard wine. Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Cuvée Natalie Silver Belt has a lovely floral nose with notes of lavender and red roses over a core of raspberry leaves, wild strawberries and forest floor. Medium-bodied, it has a refreshing line of acid and wonderfully ripe, silky tannins supporting the intense, perfumed red berry flavors, finishing with an herbal lift.
The 2014 Pinot Noir Silver Belt Cuvée Natalie has more density, power and richness than the Kistler Vineyard, with darker tonalities of fruit, to match its inner sweetness. The distinctive aromatics of Swan clone are especially pronounced today. Translucent and expressive, with striking shades of red/purplish fruits, the 2014 is magnificent today. Silky tannins and soft contours will make the 2014 nearly impossible to resist upon release.
