A lot funk and fairly closed up. Decanted and covered. Was much better the next evening.

Amazing wine. 11 years later, still has acidity and lots of life. I wish I had more.

This wine is drinking incredibly well right now. A bit surprised it is as fresh and vibrant at this age. Butterscotch, lemon, apricot.

Really enjoying this wine. Used a Coravin and tasting three time over one month. Needs a bit of time to open up. Big, jammy, dark red fruit with a soft tannic finish.

I think many people would rate this higher. It is a fantastic wine, but is not my ideal on the palate. Recommend decanting 1-2 hours minimum.

Cool climate pinot, elegant and focused. Not a big monster, like I usually drink, but really a great wine.

Perfect timing. Wine is bold but tannins will soften with decanting and a few hours.

Aged. Nerds some time to breathe in glass. Turned out to be excellent. Still lots of fruit, some acidity, but complex. Drinking where I like. I will drink the rest over the next few months.

Double decanted and started opening up. About two hours later, it started turning with a bit too much barnyard/manure. Will try single decant or no decant on the next bottle.

Amazing wine. Showing incredibly well and very useful. Still has plenty of life left and could mature a bit more.

Seemed to have lost most of its backbone. Had a little too much funk. Definitely recommend drinking now.

Good, solid cab, but a little green. I am concerned that it may be due to 2011 vintage. It was pop and pour, so will decant next one. Recomme.d buying 2009 or 2012 if you can.

Did not age well. Tasted like it was overdone in the production.

Very elegant wine, but extremely aged. Need to prefer more mature sparkling to fully appreciate this one.

Outstanding wine. In the drinking window. Very typical Napa valley floor cab profile. Tannins have softened. Decanted 30 minutes.

Drank at Michael Anthony's on HHI for 11th anniversary. Decanted one hour, probably could have used 2 more hours in decanter. Great wine, lots of fruit and tannins starting to soften.

Was great in its prime, but is now over the hill. Tired and missing what it means to be a Kistler Chard.
