had sandwiched in between humbrecht reisling and pinot gris...really showed burg/chablis in style being lean w solid acidity, maybe still showing younger in style at nine but struck me as not developed traditional Kistler
Medium gold color. Aromas of toasted nuts, vanilla, nougat, and lemon wood polish. The palate here is overpowering in the oak presence with heavy toasted vanilla bean, alcohol, and bitter wood notes that dominate, leading into a slightly resinous lemon finish that lingers. A disappointment as a drink but well received for the sentiment behind it. Drink up.
Found a bottle in the cellar and opened it with new friends. What a surprise! Color was a deep golden yellow, the nose was beautiful with citrus and honey, the wine was big and long with lemon citrus notes, honey and caramel and a finish that went on and on. Surprisingly good for a 9 year old Kistler. That said, I'm glad it is the last of my 2004s!
Brilliant showing tonight with pan roasted trout. Expressive, layered and powerful. Orange marmalde, lemon zest and other citrus notes explode from the glass. Finishies long with honey, nuts and minerals. Last glass was even better than the first.
