($65) Slightly paler color than the Hyde. More fruit-driven aromas of apricot, peach, grilled nuts and light sulfides. Hugely fruity to the point of painful; round, sweet flavors of dried and fresh orchard fruits and grapefruit. Very smooth in the middle, with just a tad less complexity of flavor than the Hyde. A bit chewier on the finish.

The blockbuster 2000 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard (produced from an old Wente Chardonnay clone) is an intensely steely offering with extraordinary texture, ripeness, and weight, with a liquid minerality, phenomenal precision, and a sensational finish that lasts nearly 40 seconds ... remarkable for a dry white. It possesses a floral note intermixed with the minerality and citrus fruit aspect so prevalent in this vintage's finest wines. Enjoy it over the next decade.

Scents of anise, fig and apricot lead to similar flavors on the palate, shaded by smoky oak and a hint of marshmallow on the finish. Not quite as flamboyant as the other Kistlers, but may be in time. 1,845 cases made.
