Jeb Dunnuck (JD) : 94 Points (2016)
Possessing a great nose of black raspberries, kirsch, violet, and forest floor, the 2016 Pinot Noir Freestone-Occidental is bright and juicy, with elegance and beautiful purity of fruit. Showing fine tannins, a lovely floral quality, integrated acidity, and a great finish, this is pure class.

Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2016)
Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Freestone-Occidental has a bright, open nose of warm cranberry, rhubarb and pomegranate with raspberry and red cherry preserves plus notes of saline, orange peel, autumn leaves, rose petal and stone. Light to medium-bodied, it's packed with juicy red, perfumed fruits in the mouth, with very fine, softly grainy tannins and juicy freshness, finishing long and focused. There's a unique coastal signature to this very pretty wine.

Decanter (DCT) : 91 Points (2016)
Made with 100% destemmed grapes, this Pinot Noir is pale coloured with aromas of raspberry, cherry and cranberry with a slight herbal hint of dried mint. Silky tannins and bright acidity give a delicate, ethereal polish. Occidental is the Pinot-only project from Steve Kistler, purchased in 1999 and comprising of 11ha.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 94 Points (2015)
The 2015 Pinot Noir (Freestone Occidental) is superb. Rich, dense and inviting, this Occidental's appellation wine captures the essence of the vintage in its radiant, enveloping personality. Dark red cherry, plum, lavender, licorice and spice notes abound in this exuberant, alluring Pinot. The 2015 shuts down very quickly with air, so I would not open it in advance. Ideally, though, readers should be prepared to hang onto these wines for at least a few years. The Occidental appellation wine now carries the Freestone Occidental designation. It is the same wine I previously reviewed as the estate's Sonoma Coast Pinot. Most importantly, though, it is fabulous.
