International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

($65) Medium yellow. Superripe, musky aromas of orange oil, ginger, charred oak and light sulfides. Sweet and full in the mouth, but with a penetrating quality to the pineapple and spice flavors. This, too, is very light on its feet. Finishes elegant, juicy and long, with an enticing mineral edge to its flavors.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 150

A profound effort from the dynamic Kistler-Bixler duo is the 2002 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard. Spectacular ripeness along with a liquid minerality give this large-scaled, bigger than life Chardonnay tremendous balance/equilibrium. This compelling, full-bodied, dense wine offers smoky hazelnut characteristics intermixed with oranges, lemons, tropical fruits, and hints of Grand Marnier as well as caramel. There is a lot going on in this full-bodied, concentrated yet impeccably well-balanced offering. It should drink well for a decade.

Drinking like a good white burgundy, very enjoyable, though the finish lacks a little. Great with food (unlike many Calif. chards.) Drink now or in the next year

Much more oak than the 2003, but the creaminess and vanilla are still prevalent in the nose. Excellent driving acid leads to lasting, balanced finish.
