    August 24, 2012 - Still a nice bottle of wine. Good acidity and still has nice fruit.

    April 22, 2012 - Finally a Kistler that aged well! Golden color with a nose of smoke, pineapple and buttery caramel. The wine still has delicious fruit, good acidity and a mouth coating velvety finish that lasts for over 1 minute. Been saving this bottle for a while and glad I popped it tonight. What is most impressive is that I am finishing up the bottle after opening it 5+ hours ago and it is still delicious. No signs of oxidation or nuttiness that I have found to be very prevalent with the 2002 and 2004s.

    March 13, 2012 - No signs of oxidation -- unlike many older Kistler chardonnays. Nice balance and acidity.

    March 13, 2011 - Still hanging on, but past it's prime. Butter and caramel on the nose, slight citrus notes on the palate.

    December 27, 2008 - Christmas Dinner with the family. Nose is going through the change. Time to drink this wine up. Drinking perfect right now. Color golden yellow to light brown.
