These are THE Crème de la Crème of highly collectible Cali Cult Pinot Noirs, Ladies and Gentlemen…

★ Featured Pinot Noir, OCCIDENTAL the keyword here… by Kistler;
This Lovely Pinot is from a World-Famous Producer noted for California Cult Wines; at Half the Price of some Cult Pinot Noir on this Exclusive List, it has garnered a Massive Score of 95+ Points Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, and I highly recommend at least 6-bottles to a case of this 2018 alone… friendly VIP heads-up. Let’s Build-a-15-pack 🙂

From The Wine Advocate, “The 2018 Pinot Noir Freestone-Occidental comes mostly from younger vines at the Occidental property but is made with the same attention to detail as the other wines in the portfolio, using free-run juice. Its nose is an aromatic well, offering crushed blueberries, charcuterie, Earl Grey tea leaves, graphite, saline, bitter orange peel and potpourri aromas. In the mouth, it explodes with lush fruits that give way after their initial rush to bitter, citrusy, minerally accents. It has a fine grain, seamless freshness and long, layered finish. It’s enjoyable now but will age well over the next five to eight-plus years.” ROBERT PARKER 95+ POINTS

From Vinous, “The 2018 Pinot Noir Occidental Ridge Vineyard is a magnificent, head spinning wine. Inky dark fruit, violet, plum, licorice, hard candy, mint and sweet spice give the 2018 striking aromatic nuance, but it is the wine’s mid-palate depth and unctuous richness that stand out most. Even with all of its overtness and plushness, the 2018 remains light on its fee. That, in essence, is the magic of the Sonoma Coast – the way on which the wines feel ripe but not heavy. Wow. What a wine.” VINOUS ANTONIO GALLONI 98 POINTS
CIRQ
2016 CIRQ TREEHOUSE
PINOT NOIR 98 POINTS
$199.99/btl add to cart
(only 4-bottles available)
From Jeb Dunnuck, “The 2016 Pinot Noir Treehouse Vineyard is similarly colored and offers rockstar notes of black cherries, mulberries, crushed violets, and forest floor/underbrush. Medium-bodied, vibrant, and seamless, with nothing out of place and ultra-fine, building tannin, it shows the balance and purity that’s the hallmark of this incredible vintage in Sonoma. Give bottles a year or two and enjoy over the following decade.” Jeb Dunnuck 98 Points
2018-AUBERT-CIX
2018 AUBERT CIX ESTATE
PINOT NOIR 97 POINTS
$175.00/btl add to cart
(only 5-bottles available)
From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2018 Pinot Noir CIX Estate is a little closed to begin, opening with fragrant red roses, raspberry leaves, black tea and damp soil notes over a core of kirsch, mulberries and redcurrant jelly plus a touch of Sichuan pepper… amazing finely grained texture with bold freshness and intensely perfumed red fruit carrying right on through the long finish.” ROBERT PARKER 97 Points
2018-KISTLER-LAGUNA-RIDGE
2018 KISTLER LAGUNA RIDGE
PINOT NOIR 96 POINTS
$139.99/btl add to cart
(only 6-bottles available)
From Jeb Dunnuck, “The 2018 Pinot Noir Laguna Ridge Vineyard is a darker, more black and blue fruited release that has more fruit and opulence, yet still plays in the fresh, elegant, cooler climate style favored at this estate. Plenty of leafy herbs, forest floor, and mineral notes emerge with time in the glass, and it’s medium to full-bodied and offers bright yet integrated acidity, flawless balance, and a great finish. It’s another beautiful wine in the lineup.” Jeb Dunnuck 96 Points
2018-SEA-SMOKE-SOUTHING
2018 SEA SMOKE SOUTHING
PINOT NOIR Not Rated (yet)
$99.99/btl add to cart
(only 3-bottles available)
Winery Notes: “A brooding and intense wine. The aromas begin with notes of Elderberry, Freesia and Fig, then a myriad of savory spices, and a hint of lavender. Firm, mature tannins—evidence of Ten’s ageability—are followed by a long, velvety finish.”
Ed’s Notes, We will likely see a 98-100pt score on this one. 96pts min for sure, and btls average $110+

From Jeb Dunnuck, “A good value in world-class Pinot Noir, the 2018 Rochioli Pinot Noir Russian River Valley comes from a mix of the estate’s single vineyard and was 95% destemmed and brought up in French oak. It has a great red fruit-driven core as well as lots of floral and spice notes, medium body, great acidity, and no shortage of length on the finish. It’s great today and will shine for 7-8 years.” Jeb Dunnuck 94 Points
2018-ROAR
2018 ROAR PISONI
PINOT NOIR 96 POINTS
$79.99/btl add to cart
(only 3-bottles available)
From Wine Enthusiast, “Brown sugar and Luxardo cherry aromas meet with nutmeg and cola spices on the layered, inviting, rich and delicious nose of this bottling. The single-vineyard expression is voluptuous on the palate, delivering joyous and vivid black-cherry flavors that are cut by an underlying acidity and structure, which allows the baking-spice backdrop to shine: a giant wine, with balance.” Wine Enthusiast 96 Points

We’ve all heard the term Cult Wine, and Merriam-Webster defines Cult as a great devotion.  2018 was an idyllic vintage from start to finish, and Kosta Browne wrote that it was “one of the finest growing seasons of the past decade.” Simply put, Kosta Browne Pinot Noir fans have a lot to be thankful for with these 2018 releases. Highly recommended before scores are released….
