    September 22, 2018 - This was a beautiful, rich, and nicely balanced Kistler chardonnay. I think the best Kistler I've tried to this point.

    May 25, 2018 - Wow...what an interesting bottle! I’ve been drinking Kistler Chards for over 25 years, and this bottle just about floored me. When first opened, it had a decidedly un-Dutton-like pungent acidity on the nose (I’ve always found the Duttons to be among the more unctuous of the Kistlers). It smelled like a brand new Chablis, yet had a hint of white flowers, almost like a Viognier. I decanted it for an hour, and it was a whole different story. Not to be too verbose, but it was perfectly balanced structurally, with noticeable acidity that was beautifully rounded by the papaya and vanilla flavors on the front and mid palate. I have two more bottles. I’m very happy about that!
