Deep golden. Oaky chardonnay aromas . At first it is sharp, but improves dramatically over an hour. Now it has a powerful attack of vanilla lemon kiwi, and a solid beam of acids. This is showy and tasty. It seems the 06 Kistlers have hit their stride. This is not the most delicate, or nuanced wine, but it works well and I’m enjoying it.
These wines are available for less at auctions (check winebid and Acker) then direct from the mailing list. It is available for around $70. Even though I am a fan of the producer, there’s better at this price. Grade: B.
