2008 Kistler "Kistler Vineyard" Sonoma Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1078599 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright gold. Wild, complex nose combines orange zest, dried pear, smoky minerals, iodine and a whiff of lees. Deep, stony and precise, with fruit in the background and minerality to the fore. This is a real mouthful of rocks. Becomes spicier and more floral with air and finishes with superb precision and length. Inner quote mark (6/2011)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A steely, tightly-knit offering that requires some introspection as well as more bottle age is the 2008 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard. Unbuttered popcorn, crisp pear, white peach and steely, wet rock-like characteristics suggest lots of minerality in this wine that plays it close to the vest. It needs plenty of coaxing and will benefit from another 1-2 years of bottle age. It should drink well for a decade. (RP) 93+ Inner quote mark (2/2011)
