April 30, 2014 - Oxidized. Dead. Pour it out.
November 10, 2010 - Mon's 56th Chef's Table in the Four Seasons Chicago (Four Seasons, Chicago): A bit cloudy, chardonnay color, would have said it was the same as the Kistler, stiking similiarities, good composition, age worthy.
September 3, 2009 - Deep gold color and huge nut and butterscotch nose. Butterscotch and caramel flavors predominate with honey-lemon tea undertones. This wine suffered from rather indifferent wine service at BYOB local restaurant. The requested ice-bucket never arrived. Not rated as I don't think we were able to see this bottle at its best. Still, I love Kistlers with some age!
May 1, 2009 - Over the hill, butterscotch nose. Decent palate with some lift still there, but overall not a great experience.
April 25, 2009 - Sourced from WineBid. Gotta give that seller props (whoever you are), because this was in fantastic shape. Had this at dinner,
so no detailed notes, but from memory, it was showing a gold tinge in the glass. Medium bodied. Palate offered up notes of ripe stone fruit, orange marmalade,
raw almond. Nice acidity to round it out. Lingering finish. I think this should be consumed (with much pleasure) over the next 2 years before it declines. Impressive. (92-93)
January 20, 2008 - Still a very lovely bottle of wine. But time to drink up.
November 19, 2005 - Holding up well but won't get any better. Still benefits from some air.
May 13, 1999 - Leesy, apples, spice, and other big flavors. Huge palate impact, with great weight, yet finesse. Huge, spicy finish. Great.
