    November 27, 2015 - Interesting experiment - a 12 year old Kistler. Has held up well sine I last tried this bottling 5 years ago. Unfortunately there was not much left even in 2010.

    November 23, 2015 - One of the better single vineyard offerings I've had in a long time. REALLY enjoyed this bottle from '03. Nice fruit. well balanced. Honeysuckle, apricot on the nose. pineapple. LOVED it.. I'm sure Provenance had a lot to do with this bottle: It went from Kistler directly into my cellar, and has stayed there ever since.

    October 28, 2014 - Chicago Wine Flock...Hezi's Late 90s Trip Around the World (Hezi's - HP,IL): Tasted double blind. A very odd bottle. First there seemed to be some spritz I would expect from secondary fermentation in bottle. Furthermore the wine was mostly stripped of any interesting (or uninteresting) aromas, then very flat on palate with a bitter note. I thought this was also slightly corked.

    June 3, 2014 - In a nice spot now, still fresh and lively, but with well developed secondary characteristics as well. Doubt it will improve.
