2015 Pinot Noir Silver Belt Vineyard Cuvée NatalieJoin To Purchase
Another standout, Kistler's 2015 Pinot Noir Silver Belt Cuvée Natalie is a potent, massively concentrated wine. The presence of Swan clone Pinot as a complement to the Calera clone gives the Cuvée Natalie a palpable sense of aromatic lift and a slightly redder profile than the Laguna Ridge. Rose petal, mint, lavender and raspberry jam are some of the many notes that build as this racy, voluptuous Pinot shows off its personality. Deep, pliant and super-expressive, the Cuvée Natalie appears to have a very bright future.

Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Cuvee Natalie Silver Belt leaps from the glass with decadent scents of chocolate-covered cherries, mulberries, redcurrant jelly and black raspberries with suggestions of baking spices, star anise, dried Provence herbs, truffles and tilled soil plus a waft of fallen leaves. Medium to full-bodied, it completely coats the mouth with seductive black and red berry layers plus loads of spicy sparks. Framed by velvety tannins, it finishes with great length and depth.
