International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($65) Medium yellow with green highlights. Subtle aromas of peach blossom, lemon cream and vanilla. Big, sweet, layered and rich; chewy but not at all heavy. Very highly concentrated wine with ripe, pure fruit flavors of citrus and stone fruits. Wonderfully ripe and fruit-driven without being exotic. Very long and rich on the back.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 157

The 2003 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard has a Corton-Charlemagne-like personality. Notes of acacia flower, stone fruits, liqueur of rocks, some orange blossom notes intermixed with apple skin, and hints of hazelnut and lemon butter are all present in this full-bodied, stony, mineral-dominated wine that is undeniably impressive. Again, it is backward, but there is an inner core of concentration that just goes on and on. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Ripe and vibrant, with intense pear, tangerine, anise and mandarin orange flavors that are tightly wound and focused, gaining complexity and finishing with a burst of fruit flavors. 835 cases made.

Excellent as usual, however, not quite as bright on the palate, perhaps showing a bit of age. Customary citrus and floral notes were prominent. Beautiful gold presentation and structure, really well made wine.

Cream, vanilla, lilac, honey, and alcohol on the nose. Strong acid creates structure but is balanced by a creamy viscosity. 30 second finish. Nice wine!
