Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

($90) Bright yellow-gold. Deep, musky aromas of poached pear, peach pit, iodine, smoked meat and yellow rose. Fleshy, palate-coating orchard and pit fruit flavors display outstanding depth, with strong floral, herbal and mineral qualities adding complexity. The finish is a wall of deep, powerful fruit and mineral notes that refuses to let go of the palate. This is all Wente clone and the richest chardonnay of this year's line-up from Kistler.

Gold. Mild floral aromas mixed with honeysuckle jump from the glass. The wine kept improving with air and went from great to amazing. Flavors of peaches and tropical fruits kept up the attack to the last drop. Great minerality and acidity. Terrific
