    January 2, 2014 - Showing signs of age, now full of roasted nuts, caramelized apple, lees. Balance remains nice, and it will appeal to lovers of older Chardonnays.

    September 20, 2013 - golden evolved color; maderized nose and flavors of almonds, orange oil, and a hint of butterscotch; yet another example of how these concentrated Kistlers when supported by sufficient acidity can sing in their senescence

    October 18, 2012 - Another go with this one and a different story; still visually old deeply amberred with aromas of nuts and lemon peel but this bottle offered crisp acidity keeping the old flavors sharp and focused

    May 31, 2012 - Pineapple, apricots, honeysuckle. Nice bitterness. This is really good.

    May 9, 2012 - Deep amber; maderization amuck on this one and i dig old musty stuff like sherry,madeira,and old chards but this bottle had only oxidation with no remaining charm in the core.

    (Kistler Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard) Yellow gold color; tight but light incense nose, that opens up after 15 minutes to hints of cinnamon and maple; tight, spicy, concentrated, oily textured, mineral palate; medium finish
