“Glorious pomegranate, ripe cherry, tangy dried figs, a sexy palate with hints of framboise and cranberry. A refreshing finish that remind us of a hypothetical blend of Grand Cru Chambertin and a top Kistler single vineyard! Simply exquisite Pinot Noir that will certainly enhance any cellar, given the mind-boggling pedigree + price. Bravo!” (August, 2018) - California Wine Advisors 

BACKGROUND
This remarkable Pinot Noir is both supremely delicious and offers an extraordinary combination of three of the most legendary Pinots in California history: 1) Bill Price, owner of collector-favorite Kistler Vineyards, and 2) Bob Cabral, the longtime winemaker of legendary Williams Selyem Pinot Noirs, are the visionaries behind Three Sticks…..and 3) They have sourced this bottling exclusively from the famed Gap’s Crown Vineyard, owned by Kosta Browne. Delivering the best of both worlds – Kosta Browne’s smooth, sumptuous fruit and Kistler’s style and elegance – this Pinot massively over delivers, as it reminds us of many of the $150+ Pinots we recommend.
