More Vintages and Sizes of Kistler - Chardonnay Dutton Ranch (formerly RRV):
International Wine Cellar
Author: Stephen Tanzer
Issue: Issue 102
Slightly hazy appearance and bit more yellow than the McCrea. Richer, more perfumed aromas of orange blossom, nuts, spices and dried fruits. Concentrated, dense and suave, with lively balancing acidity and floral lift. Kistler describes this wine as "one of our softer '99s." Finishes with very good length. A strong note of coconut lingers in the empty glass.

The soft 1999 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch (2,000 cases) is made in a typical California style. Orange marmalade, pineapple, and mango aromas and flavors are apparent in this full-bodied, rich, smoky Chardonnay. While exceptional, it lacks the minerality and definition of Kistler's other offerings.
Author: James Laube
Rich and intense, with complex layers of fig, anise, apricot and sage, packing in lots of flavor while maintaining a sense of elegance and grace.
