2016 Kistler "Hudson Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay

SKU #1388273 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard is delicate and also beautifully layered in the glass. Lemon confit, smoke, slate, tangerine and spice all open up in the glass. A hint of reduction adds character and freshness. Today, the Hudson is quite reticent and gives the impression it is still holding quite a bit in reserve. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark One of the more masculine, mineral-laced releases, the 2016 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard comes from a terrific site in Carneros. Lots of spiced orchard fruits, apple blossom, crushed rocks and a salty, oyster shell-like character give way to a medium-bodied, rich, concentrated effort that’s only hinting at its ultimate potential today. 94+ Inner quote mark (6/2018)

94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard is slightly subdued at this early stage, offering up subtle notes of green guava, lemon tart, fresh Bosc pears and baker’s yeast with touches of coriander seed, lanolin and lime leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has an almost electric intensity of tightly wound flavors with a racy line and long, satin-textured finish. (LPB) 94+ Inner quote mark (6/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Red berry and white cherry flavor are crisp and well-focused in this sleek, fruity style. Light minerality and dried savory notes emerge on the finish. (KM) Inner quote mark (7/2019)
