Issue: Issue 168
Light yellow, with a green hue. An intense, mineral-dominated bouquet evokes nectarine, orange, lemon pith and white flowers, with a chalky topnote. Racy, focused and strikingly pure citrus and orchard fruit flavors are underscored by vibrant mineral and iodine qualities and pick up flesh with aeration. Closes with superb clarity and length, trailing notes of honeysuckle, sweet butter and citrus zest.

The 2010 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Cathleen emerges from a single block within the Kistler Vineyard. Here the flavors are bright, nuanced and highly articulated, in stark contrast with the Kistler Vineyard. Today, the Cuvee Cathleen gives the impression of being almost weightless on the palate. Crushed rocks and a host of saline notes underpin the gorgeous finish. My sense is that the 2010 will blossom even more with additional time in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.
