    Winemaker's Notes:

    A wine of intense blue and black fruit tones, wildflowers and minerals. A lingering perfume contributes to an impression of delicacy. A singular wine that embodies the character of this unique site.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright ruby. Heady, exotic nose delivers an array of red berry, spice and floral qualities, with a bright mineral topnote Graceful, focused red berry and rose pastille flavors show outstanding vivacity, with spicecake and anise flavors contributing complexity. Very pure, mineral-driven pinot with wonderful finishing clarity and lingering florality.

    The 2009 Pinot Noir Bodega Headlands Cuvee Elizabeth comes across as a bit firmer and less expressive than the Cuvee Catherine. There is a salty, saline quality that runs through the fruit in this powerful, structured wine. Waves of fruit crescendo on the explosive finish. This is a dazzling Pinot Noir, but it will require at least another year or two in bottle to reveal its pedigree. I loved it.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    Austere, with a pleasant briny, flinty, oyster shell texture. Underneath, there's trim ripe berry flavors that gain richness and dimension. Quite tannic. Needs time. A strikingly distinctive and new-for-me Kistler.
