2015 Occidental Station Cuvée Catherine

Score: 96+

The most inland vineyard, the 2015 Pinot Noir Occidental Station Cuvee Catherine sports a medium ruby-purple color and wonderfully floral nose with notions of red roses, lavender and lilacs over a core of cranberries, Bing cherries and rhubarb plus touches of tilled soil, sage and mossy bark. Medium-bodied and possessing bags of finesse in the mouth, the palate features incredible freshness off-setting the bold fruit with a firm yet finely grained texture and amazing length. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
