International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

($65) Pale-medium yellow. Crushed stone, ginger, iodine, grapefruit and orange zest on the high-pitched nose. Spicy, fine-grained and densely packed, with superb flavor intensity and outstanding lift. Impressively broad but also light on its feet. Very long, unflagging, uncompromisingly dry finish features juicy citrus flavors and minerals. Here's another Kistler chardonnay that could do some major damage in a blind tasting with top white Burgundies.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 150

The medium-bodied 2002 Chardonnay Hudson E-Block exhibits notions of lemon peel, tropical fruit (pineapple), and a hint of pear. Like many of the Kistler 2002 Chardonnays, there is a greenish hue to the light straw color. The flavors include a touch of smoke and earth, but this offering finishes short in the mouth. I would not be surprised to see it put on additional weight prior to bottling next year.

With an intense yellow-gold color in the glass, this fully-developed CA Chard displays a mature nose of toast and creme brulee that hangs on to lemon citrus and pineapple fruit. The palate retains freshness and structure with flavors that follow the nose. Overall, this wine is still showing well and pleasant to drink. Drink now!

This chardonnay has held up really well, despite my initial questions about whether or not CA chardonnays have the ability to age. Wet stone and muted citrus on the nose. On the palate ate flavors of citrus, marzipan and lemon. Finish falls slightly short, but nevertheless, pleasant and still quite fresh. I'd drink this now if you have any left in your cellar.

Bright citrus on the nose. Flavors are fruit-forward with plenty of oak, buttery mouth-feel. Drinking nicely, overall pleasant wine.

Rich lemon fruit, good acid, slightly bitter apple finish to it. I'm not sure if this will benefit from any further aging, so maybe best to drink up in the next year or so. Probably best with food.

Some funk on the nose that blows off with a little air. A BIG nose of toasty oak, ripe mango and banana with creme brulee/custard. Creamy mouthfeel with ripe peach and pineapple cake. Acidity carries through with some bitter apple peel on the finish. A broad, concentrated wine that's still showing fairly well.
