2014 Kistler "Hudson Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay

SKU #1271748 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard opens with a characteristic reductive note that also adds an element of freshness and aromatic intrigue. Deep on the palate, yet also weightless, the Hudson has a lot going on. Slate, dried herbs, candied lemon and white pepper add to the wine's super-distinctive aromatic and flavor profile. The Hudson is one of the clear standouts in 2014. Drink now-2024. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard has a full-on expressive nose of candied ginger, brioche and honey-drizzled peaches with a waft of orange blossoms. Full-bodied, rich and already strutting its stuff, it has a refreshing line of acidity and wonderful length with some minerals coming through. Drink now-2023. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2017)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very tight and well-built, with a firm backbone of toasty oak framing the taut citrus, green apple and nectarine flavors. Vibrant and persistent, ending with a return of the oak elements. Drink now through 2021. (JL) Inner quote mark (6/2017)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark A perceptibly green note to the gold. Even richer on the nose than the Hyde 2014 bottling with a sumptuous ripe melon aroma. Broad and vibrant but a little more tightly laced up on the finish than the Hyde. A floral topnote. Really rich, almost sweet on the palate but no alcoholic heat on the finish - just the lightest of hints of cappuccino. A mouthful of pleasure for those who revel in the best-balanced California Chardonnays in traditional style. Long. 17.5/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2016)
