    June 22, 2019 - Nice medium ruby. No amber. Elegant old world style . Really round and delicious. Been stored since release but probably need to drink up.

    April 13, 2019 - Medium purple/red color. Aromas of blueberries and candied violets. Fully integrated, medium-bodied fruit in the mouth with excellent depth and length. This delicious wine was complex and suave on the palate and incredibly fresh for a 15 year old California Pinot Noir and showed no signs of deterioration an hour after opening.

    December 30, 2018 - One of the best Kistlers i've had and one of my favorite pinots overall. Drinking great now and drink rest over next several years.

    November 22, 2018 - Gift from my wine locker! Nothing detailed, but a thoroughly enjoyable bottle, nicely showing it's age/evolution, nice fruit suggests may suggest RS, but I think not. Rich and complex over a few hours. This bottle could easily go additional years in cellar, but it was a one and only.

    June 2, 2018 - Dark red color, initial nose was spicy dark cherry which expanded over 90 minutes or so and then faded over the next 2 hours. Very ripe mixed cherry fruit, spice, and cola were predominate on palate, finish was long with sweet fruit and cola. A decent Cali pinot but the cola notes were a bit overpowering at the end of 3 hours.
