    July 27, 2014 - no notes so NR, this was OK but my wife on night one thought it was caramel and smoke and too aged for her, i thought same (almost as if premox'd?), slightly better on night two but not my favorite Kistler chardonnay

    March 20, 2014 - Rhone gathering - 08 Rayas, 85 and 89 La Las (The Grill Room at Capella Hotel Georgetown): Ripe yellow fruits, pineapple and pineapple Fanta also lemon curd. Noticeable alcohol as warms up. Unctuous, oily, mineral and a bit of heat. I would serve it a bit chiller than usual to reduce the heat. Still quite enjoyable in very Kistler way.

    February 20, 2014 - Loads of sweet oak, still well balanced with the fruit. Second day it fell apart a bit but still nice. As with most Kistlers it's quite good off the bat, but don't wait on them for years.

    August 3, 2013 - This wine seems to be amazingly shut down by the standards of California Chardonnay. Like a closed old-school white Burgundy, this has more than a little in common with Perrier mineral water at this stage! Perhaps transport trauma exacerbated the problem—if it is a problem. There don't seem to be any problems of overall balance, nor is there a lack of textural depth, so my intuition is that it will develop positively.
