Fast Times at the Frey's: Medium gold color. Drank a 4 oz pour over an hour. Drank this next to a '10 Shafer RSR and there certainly was a big step up with the Kistler. A fairly big wine no doubt, but not such that it screams at you. I found it very attractive all around. The nose has lovely golden fruits, rich and complex with peah and melon in addition to a toasted oak that was complimenting the fruit well. The palate brings what you expect from the nose, a full bodied gem with depth and class, lemon, peach, butter brickle, almost a bit savory, great texture, it really caresses the mouth nicely, some toasted oak and long complex finish. Excellent. My #2 and group #3WOTN. 93+pts.
