($65) Green-gold. Ripe, lush scents of poached pear, yellow apple and peach, with a strong stony overlay. Bright and precise, with energetic stone fruit flavors and a building mineral impression. Very energetic on the finish, picking up hints of quinine and jasmine. Kistler suggests drinking this in 2008 or 2009.

Hints of ripe pears, lemon butter, tangerines, and crushed rocks emerge from the 2004 Chardonnay Vine Hill Vineyard, an elegant yet authoritatively flavored effort with a striking minerality, zesty acidity, and a spectacular finish. The good news is that there are 2,700 cases of this cuvee.

Complex, with a roasted marshmallow edge from toasty oak. There's a medium-bodied mix underneath of sleek citrus-infused pear, anise, melon and hazelnut flavors that linger and turn elegant.

Not a bad wine. Great minerality. drink alongside with 2008 Rontets - Pouilly Fuisse Pierrefolle. In comparison, Kistler is just a bit more alocoholic and more "exaggerated".

Enjoyed. Much more refined than many CA, but still very strong perfume. Drink rest later - maybe 08 or 09
