Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

Pale chartreuse color. Spicy, sharply focused aromas of nectarine, orange zest, iodine and white flowers. Stains the palate with intense, mineral-laced citrus and pit fruit flavors, complemented by intense ginger and honeysuckle accents. Finishes stony and very long, with echoing florality and strong spicy bite.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94-96

The 2011 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard is totally closed in on itself at the moment. The flavors are intensely mineral-inflected and saline. Crushed rocks and citrus lead to sweet floral and spiced notes, but the 2011 remains first and foremost a wine of texture and balance. Today, it is drop-dead gorgeous, even though the elements haven't fully come together yet. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021.
