Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 95(+?)

($70; 20 barrels made, from the "richest section" of Kistler Vineyard) Pale yellow. Bright, subtle aromas of lemon, truffle, flowers, nuts and minerals. Very rich and spicy, with penetrating fruit flavors of peach and nectarine. Large-scaled, tactile and still very young, with a strong underlying structure for aging. Finishes very long, chewy and stony. Along with the superlative 2000 version, also made entirely from Kistler Vineyard, an extremely strong release for this bottling.

Still a good wine, but based on this bottle, I have to assume it's a year past its prime, having lost some punch and finish

Slightly cloudy light gold color. Graham cracker, lemon, and cr?me brul?e in nose with some spicy mineral overtones. Lots of sweet controlled fruit on the palate. Mouth filling with excellent acidity and length. Still tight, drink 2007 to 2011.
