    December 24, 2016 - Christmas Eve with some cheeses and appetizers. PnP, drank over 90 minutes. Wine opened up nicely as it had air and warmed a bit in the glass, this had been in the fridge for a bit.

    Rich medium/dark gold color. Nose of orchard fruit, stones and white flower. Plate of candied pineapple, honey, lemon, peach, wet stones. Rich texture and long finish. Rich, rounded CA Chardonnay in its prime.

    This has improved (from memory) since last bottle, putting on weight and developing secondary characteristics. In its prime right now (IMO), would drink over next 1-2 years. My older Kistlers (06-09 vintages) did not hold up well with age. This bottle in a very different spot than some of the prior vintages, aged nicely and really drinking well.

    November 15, 2016 - This has taken on weight since sampled in 2013 - the lemon and tropical notes have mellowed, giving more balance to the wet stone and spice qualities.

    August 26, 2016 - Decent out of the gate--had with pasta (homemade sauce--it's tomato season--but plain Jane, no cheese to wreck the palate--opens up very nicely
