light yellow with a tinge of green in color, very well made chardonnay with multi layer aromas and flavors. The finish was particularly unique and lovely. Not as much minerality or weight as the other kistler vineyards but enjoyable.

Clear, light golden in hue with little rim variation. Clean intense aromas of honeysuckle, white citrus, crushed stone and buttered pear. Dry, intense palate butterscotch intermingled with some minerality. Medium + acid and body. This is big buttery california Chard that lacks some of the structure to balance out all of the secondary characters and MLF...I'm ok with this style if all the flavors are integrated and balanced, but it seems to go way over the buttery edge for me.

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.
