Light gold. Intensely aromatic scents of dried pear, orange zest, chamomile and jasmine, with hints of anise and iodine in the background. Concentrated and taut on the palate, offering tactile pear skin and Meyer lemon flavors sharpened by a strong mineral quality. Sharply delineated on the strikingly long finish, leaving dusty mineral and floral notes behind.

The finest Chardonnay barrels from Kistler Vineyard are used to fashion the Cuvee Cathleen offering. The 2011 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Cathleen. Made from an Old Wente clone, it exhibits a greenish hue to its color along with notions of tangerines, honeysuckle and orange marmalade, wonderful texture and opulence, a wet gravelly nuance, and a full-bodied finish. One of the top Chardonnays in Kistler's 2011 portfolio, it should drink well for 5-6 years.
