    April 21, 2014 - Medium-gold in color, this version of the Cuvée Cathleen is far more New World in style than its 2008 brethren. It offers intense aromas of white peaches, honey, nectarine and fig. Medium-to-full-bodied on the palate, it presents similar ripe flavors in a frame of low-to-medium acidity. The oak and alcohol are nicely integrated and the middle palate is solid. Long and luscious on the finish, it is simply a joy to drink! Well-cellared bottles should be at their best over the next 2-3 years. Drink now-2017.

    October 25, 2013 - Orange peel, grass, tangerine, lemongrass, honey and smoke?

    Full bodied and big but not over powering. Long long finish w zip acidity and ????

    Phenomenal effort. 92 or93.

    March 10, 2013 - Big disappointment like all the Kistler 2007s'. Barely drinkable. Color like apple cider. Does not hold a candle to Aubert, Peter Michael Kongsgaard or Paul Hobbs.

    December 2, 2012 - Phenominal - incredible precision, with the combination of oak, acid and fruit in almost perfect sync. Still very young though, another 3-5yrs of cellaring
