We had it at a blind tasting and several took it for a Burgundy. It was very good with nice integrated oak and tropical fruits. Drinking wery well now and will probably not improve further.

Clear, pale gold in color, medium intensity, exhibiting subdued aromas of white flowers, peach, pear and wet stone. Dry, medium bodied with medium (+) levels of acidity and alcohol. Aforementioned fruit flavors are grounded upon steely minerality that at present struggle to express due to bracing acidity. Reticent and one dimensional now but having encountered this before; I'm inclined to believe that patience will be rewarded on revisit.

This has lost some of its previous flabbiness- plenty of chiseled minerality layered with apricot and citrus flavors. Refreshing and delicious- probably near peak.

Hard to beat the Kistler/Hyde combination. Still a family fav and drinking very nicely right now.

Surprisingly similar to the outstanding 11/14/14 bottle. Still very fresh at almost 10 years of age!

Light yellow towards white; nice deep but also somewhat restrained nose; very nice and rich taste, but not fully developed and also some strong acidity; some people say that American wines can be drunk at any age, I disagree, this one still too young, very good already, but clearly there must be more complexity and interest in this wine some years ahead

All 2010's:

Ramey Hyde: quite mellow at this stage, fruit not as intense, crystalline mineral long finish with some salinity. 92

Kistler Hyde: better fruit than Ramey, but less complex and shorter finish. 92

Chasseur Lorenzo: flat, fruit and finish inferior to the other wines, leesy character on the palate. 89

Mt. Eden Estate: restrained in style, good cut and acidity, outshined by the more fruit forward wines. Not surprising considering the house style. 91

Definitely a yellow-green hue. Wet stone nose and lemon curd flavors with a bit too much acid at this point. Will give another year or so to see if it balances out.

Great kistler with flavors of white flowers, tangerine and crushed rocks. Excellent balance and flesh. Reaching the end of it maturation so drink up as it will probably decline from here.

Same comment as September: "We wake up everyday thankful that hard work, a bit of planning and a lot of luck enabled us to make enough money to buy and sip Kistler pretty much whenever we want...allocation, of course, dictating if we have the bottles :-). Thanks!!! And it is only lunchtime!!! Straw yellow with shades of grey on the eye. Vanilla, creamy with obvious oak aromas! We are happy oak-suckers! Great balance. Powerful, yet elegant, finish. Wow! As previously written in a note: "Definitely the Maid of Honour at this point but sure to be Rumpole's She Who Must Be Obeyed by 2017. Stellar!" If you have not read Rumpole's stories, you should...incredibly funny and interesting. More importantly, you will learn about She Who Must Be Obeyed!"

At home, opened and drank over two days. Nicely aged, purchased direct, in my cellar from release. Kistler gets leaner with some bottle age (in my experience) taking on interesting secondary, nuanced characteristics. This wine took about 30 minutes to start to show (a decant would help if planning to drink w/dinner).

Nose was lemongrass, petrol, honeysuckle, white flowers. Starting to show some tertiary aromatic characteristics of rubber, still fragrant. Strong mineral/stone on the front palate, followed by lemon zest, vanilla, banana, nuts. Oak is there but integrated. Well balanced, medium finish.

Elegant and refined, this bottle was drinking beautifully right now (over 2 days). If tasted (and smelled) blind I would have pegged as a white Burgundy...suggesting a longer arc ahead of it.

Drank last nite at Cape. Some vanilla, oak and tropical fruit on the nose. Fruit offset nicely by good acidity level and minerality. Not in the "fruit bomb" mode as one might expect. More tart, freshness and spice than expected, and not particularly big or overbearing. Very pleasant.

Sipping this luvly example of all things Kistler reminds us how lucky we are in life...thanks! Strong, straw yellow on the eye. Vanilla, creamy with readily apparent oak aromas! Great balance. Powerful, yet elegant, finish. Definitely the Maid of Honour at this point but sure to be Rumpole's She Who Must Be Obeyed by 2017. Stellar!

Greenish gold in color with a slightly reserved nose, (at least compared to the Aubert)
More Chablis like than the Aubert, the wine took a little while to open. Pit fruit with an acidic backbone and wet stone.
Unfortunately this was my only bottle, because I think I opened too soon.

Blind Tasting of 13 reds, 1 white and 1 Champagne at Behrens am Kai in Dusseldorf

8th Flight after the reds

very clear Cal Chardonnay, nuts, babana, vanilla, a little too much wood, middle extract, middle long finish, for my palate too unbanlanced and a little bit too strong, but very young, maybe in 5 years rounder than at this moment 91-92

Straw colored. Peach, oak, tangerine and mango on the nose. These carry through on the palate. Minerals, almond paste, vanilla, honeydew and a little bit of butter and butterscotch highlight the long and complex flavor profile. More oak and less acid than Aubert and DuMol single vineyard Chards. I liked this better than my one bottle of 09 Hyde that I had last year. Drinking well now. Clearly okay to keep and drink later as well.

Greenish yellow. Nose of ripe fruit with a touch of oak. Refreshing and zesty citrus flavours. A touch too young at the moment, but good structure. Barely legal Kate Upton like power and sassiness. We love it when all the parts come together...watch this space!

The first Chardonnay of the day before 1998 Gaia & Rey, 2009 Jean Charlton Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Folatieres and 2010 Philippe Chavy Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Pucelles so tough test. Fortunately, the crisp straw yellowish, citrus-lemon with good oak aroma and silky smooth palate of vanilla cream and oak made for an outstanding Kistler. Relatively long finish. Only one more left in the cellar for sipping in2020.
