($75) Full medium yellow. Pure but initially unforthcoming on the nose; with air this revealed complex notes of pineapple, peach, nectarine, sulfides and nut oil. Then fat, sweet and highly concentrated, with a seamless texture and lush flavors of peach and pineapple. This boasts the enticing sugar/acid balance of the best Kistler bottlings. Impressively long and smooth on the back end. The Cathleen is all from Wente clones, while the Kistler Vineyard bottling includes both Wente and Mt. Eden.

Wow....drunk a glass of '07 Rombauer chard.--a respectable wine---immediately after this bottle, and it was like two different worlds; smooth and perfectly balanced with notes of hazlenut on the finish. Very Burgundian (literally). A top effort.
