    June 15, 2019 - Although I own a few younger Kistler, and have only really TASTED Kistler with 6+ years of age on it, this was a nice contrast. I can tell why some prefer these like this and why some prefer these with some age. This wine was a bit more acidic up front than I thought it would be. Had a nice mango and melon profile with some dried nut, herb and popcorn kernel going on, and was getting a tiny bit of tropical fruit to the back, but the body of this wine was a bit on the jagged side even on the finish although the finish was a bit more velvety. I can definitely see how this jagged quality would tone down after 5 + years so for those who appreciate this with a softer quality, you've got a bit of a wait ahead of you.

    May 12, 2019 - Beautiful example of the quality Chardonnay Kistler produces. They have some lower tier wines for restaurants but the Vine Hill is superb.
