    Interestingly, the 2013 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Cathleen is quite a bit more expressive than the KV, with gorgeous textural richness and fabulous balance. Here, too, the flavors remain undeveloped, but from a textural point of view, the Cuvee Cathleen is expressive, for a young wine from this site.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    Offers a zesty mix of green apple, white peach and nectarine, shaded by lightly spicy, cedary oak. A reined-in style that is enjoyable now but should be better in a year. Drink now through 2017. 510 cases made.

    The 2013 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Cathleen is from a selection of their best parcels within this vineyard and offers a similar character to the Kistler Vineyard, but shows slightly more acidity and a more reserved, yet still concentrated full-bodied style. Drink over the next 4-6 years.
