Deep gold color and huge nut and butterscotch nose. Butterscotch and caramel flavors predominate with honey-lemon tea undertones. This wine suffered from rather indifferent wine service at BYOB local restaurant. The requested ice-bucket never arrived. Not rated as I don't think we were able to see this bottle at its best. Still, I love Kistlers with some age!
Sourced from WineBid. Gotta give that seller props (whoever you are), because this was in fantastic shape. Had this at dinner, so no detailed notes, but from memory, it was showing a gold tinge in the glass. Medium bodied. Palate offered up notes of ripe stone fruit, orange marmalade, raw almond. Nice acidity to round it out. Lingering finish. I think this should be consumed (with much pleasure) over the next 2 years before it declines. Impressive. (92-93)
