Wine Spectator 92 points - Ultrarich, with exotic, honey-laced fig, apricot and Asian pear flavors, backed by leesy tannins that give this a wet stone, crushed rock minerality and a cleansing aftertaste. Drink now through 2019.óJ.L.  (May 28 2014)

Wine Advocate 94 points - The 2011 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard displays a Corton-Charlemagne-like character with lots of wet stones and white currants, a strong minerality intermixed with acacia flower, peach and honey characteristics. This beautiful, subtle but authoritatively flavored, full-bodied white can be enjoyed over the next 5-6 years. (Dec 2013)

Produced since 1986. Just shy of 1800 feet in elevation, in a small bowl on the western edge of the Mayacama mountains lies the original Kistler planting. Thirty year old vines grow dry farmed in deep red volcanic ash, producing a wine with an intense sense of the mountain heritage of the delicate stone fruit that is lifted, like its McCrea cousin, yet firmer, and with a stronger core and added layers of richness.
