About Kistler Vineyards
Steve Kistler's rich, Burgundy-style Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, from a series of ideally situated vineyards all around Sonoma County, have long been favorites among collectors and restaurant clients. The best bottlings have proven to be excellent mid-term agers and are among the richest and most complex Chardonnays made anywhere—the key is low-tech, hands-off winemaking that makes the most of the particular vineyard site plus what each vintage has to offer.
95 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2010
($75) Bright gold. High-pitched, very pure aromas of Meyer lemon, crushed stone, iodine, white pepper and honeysuckle, with late-arriving notes of quinine and tarragon. Highly concentrated wine, with superb depth and vivacity to its citrus, floral and gripping mineral flavors. This seems as much a solid as a liquid. Its endless finish is strikingly tactile and leaves intense citrus and chalk notes behind.
