Issue Issue 150

($75) Green-tinged gold. A cool and incisive bouquet displays citrus fruits, smoky minerals, hazelnut and spearmint, plus a strong note of oyster shell. Juicy and bracing, with an intensely spicy character to the mineral-dominated lemon, orange and pear flavors suggesting moderate but not excessive ripeness. Becomes smokier and more powerful with air and finishes with outstanding clarity, cling and spicy persistence.

At my tasting, they served the 2007 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard after their flagship luxury cuvee only because it is that exotic, flamboyant, and superb. Sometimes the most forward and evolved of the Kistler Chardonnays, the 2007 is completely different. Orange marmalade, buttered and caramelized peaches and apricots as well as pineapple notes and even a hint of mango make this the most exotic and exuberant of all the 2007 Kistler Chardonnays. This is a full-bodied, hedonistic wine with an amazing personality. It should be drunk over the next 6-7 years.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
