    February 7, 2016 - A Day Old and drinking well.
    Good balance of acid and butter.
    Fruit is soft and reminds me of Sauvignon blanc.
    Short finish.
    None of the trouble my fellow cellar trackers have found.
    Guess I got lucky w the draw.
    Half hour late, kaboom. Rich,spicy, in your face Cali chard. Still really enjoying this case.

    January 17, 2015 - Deep gold color. Despite some obvious signs of oxidation, the wine still had excellent fruit and acidity and was delicious with my wke's spicy spot prawns.

    July 9, 2014 - This wine has not stood the test of time. Old, brown, and very unpleasant. So then I opened a bottle of the Hudson 04. Same result. And this is not the first time. Then I opened a Kistler "Kistler" vineyard. Still holding its own and mellowing nicely. For whatever reason the 04 and 05 Hudson, Vine Hill and Dutton have a problem. To be safe drink your Kistler Chardonnays in the first 7 years while they still taste great.
