  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

    A crisp and lively Chardonnay with a rich, concentrated, tightly wound band of nectarine, pear, citrus and spice. Gains momentum on the palate, and finishes with a wonderful display of fruit and oak complexity. 2,782 cases made.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    Aromas of lemon zest, smoke and caraway seed. Intensely flavored but very tightly wound and backward today. Dense on the palate, with minerally notes of pineapple and grapefruit. Strong acidity gives this serious chardonnay a slightly hard edge. I expect this wine to merit a 90-plus rating after a couple more years in bottle.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

    Because of the release program employed by Kistler, the 1995 Chardonnays are now coming on the market. My scores of those wines are as follows: 1995 Chardonnay Vine Hill Road Vineyard (93).
