  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 89

    Intense and concentrated, yet a bit restrained in its presentation of fruit, offering rich fig, melon and lemon-custard pie flavors, shortening up on the finish. 528 cases made.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

    Pale yellow-gold. Multidimensional, sulfidey nose combines tangerine, orange marmalade, butter, hazelnut, minerals and iodine. Dense and thick but still tightly wound and quite light on its feet; a very young wine with a superb spine of acidity and great precision. Suggestions of ripe peach and nuts in the mouth. Very long on the finish but still quite backward; the '98 version from this vineyard is more extroverted, notes Kistler.

    The 1999 Chardonnay Hudson E-Block is pure, leesy, tropical fruit, smoky, earthy, exotic offering with full body, and less definition than the other 1999s. It exhibits a smoky, in-your-face style. While it does not have the aging potential of its siblings, for drinking over the next 3-4 years, it is a lavishly rich, exotic effort.

  • Kistler Vineyards is a small family-owned winery located in the Russian River Valley specializing in Burgundian style Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Since its first vintage in 1979, the winery has grown in size to produce 25,000 cases per year. Steve Kistler and Mark Bixler share the winemaking responsibilities, while Mark also acts as chemist and business manager. The winery, completed in 1992, is located on their Vine Hill Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Kistler's fruit is sourced from various vineyards across Napa and Sonoma counties. Kistler Vineyards' wines are released semi-annually and almost exclusively to its mailing list.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
