    The top cuvee, the 2012 Chardonnay Cuvee Cathleen, comes from the Kistler Vineyard and is essentially a selection of the best barrels. As you can imagine, it's similar to the Kistler Vineyard, with many of the same aromatic and flavor components, just slightly more intense and perhaps a trifle longer. Both of these Kistler Vineyard cuvees are spectacular Chardonnays to drink over the next 5-8 years.
