Six-Magnum Vertical of Casteel Pinot Noir, 2014-2019

Includes VIP Experience
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on 4/6/2023
The Casteel Pinot Noir is the only Bethel Heights Pinot Noir that carries our family name rather than a place name. This gives us considerable poetic license to select our favorite barrels from each vintage to express the pinnacle of that vintage at Bethel Heights.

2014 Casteel Pinot Noir “What a fabulous Pinot Noir - world class.” Wine Advocate 94 points
2015 Casteel Pinot Noir “Supple tannins add shape to a smooth, extremely long finish.” Vinous 94 points
2016 Casteel Pinot Noir “Delivers a long and deeply juicy, focused finish.” 95 points
2017 Casteel Pinot Noir “A beautifully composed wine with a handsomely savory thread.” 95 points
2018 Casteel Pinot Noir “Fine clarity and floral lift on a long, velvety finish.” Vinous 95 points
2019 Casteel Pinot Noir “Extraordinary layering and length, plus a singular streak of saline-like character.” Wine Advocate 98 points

Included Experience:
Taste several vintages of the Casteel Pinot Noir with Winemaker Ben Casteel and explore the evolution of selecting and blending the components of this wine since his father initiated our “best of the vintage” project in 2002. Tasting will include the 2021 vintage, where a new direction was taken, as well as a tasting of the potential components of the 2022 vintage still in progress.
