    November 15, 2014 - Given my last tasting note must be an off-bottle (oxidised?); medium to full yellow; buttery fresh slightly sharp nose, some pineapple; some body but impression is lean and somewhat sour; ok wine but not Kistler standard

    July 12, 2014 - Love this wine! Big nose, golden color, big finish. The taste of pear and apple came through with a hint of citrus. A delightful wine.

    May 29, 2014 - Crisp, lemon, perhaps a bit of grass...a touch dry and mineral...some oak comes out later.

    January 5, 2014 - Light straw. Apple,pear and tangerine on the nose. Nicely oaked, Granny Smith apples, complex with a long finish. Excellent with food and by itself.

    April 16, 2013 - My first Kistler, and I got to say, i liked it! It has been a couple of days, so it would be hard for me to give tasting notes. I recall it being more mineral than many Chardonnays I have had, but in a very good way. I also recall the perfect amount of fruit to balance it out, mainly in the middle of the taste.
