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.
94 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2012
Bright gold. Exotic, intensely perfumed aromas of poached pear, anise and chamomile, with a salty topnote. Mineral-accented orchard and citrus fruit flavors show impressive depth and precision, with vibrant ginger and floral qualities and a note of iodine adding to the impression of energy. Finishes extremely long, stony and chewy, leaving intense mineral and spice notes behind.
