New Pinot by Kistler owners A fantastic new Pinot Noir discovery under $30. A project from wine entrepreneur Bill Price, owner of Kistler, Kosta Browne and Three Sticks winery. This Pinot is a blend from several vineyards throughout the Sonoma Coast, including Durell Vineyard, Wildcat Vineyard, and Sangiacomo. Rich and gutsy, this is a black-fruited wonder that still maintains nice balance and acidity. Wine Enthusiast: "Offering value and full-bodied flavor, this wine sources grapes from Price Family, Durell and Wildcat Canyon, among others. It finds a way to be earthy and herbal while also fruity. A leathery texture and medium acidity combine for likable complexity, the wine ultimately retaining its savory bones." Even better, for every two bottles sold, one dollar is donated to either the Sonoma Valley Education Foundation or Sustainable Surf.
Drinkable, not remarkable. Had the 2018. Touch sharp.
