Issue Issue 168

Bright, green-tinged gold. Seductive, highly perfumed aromas of dried pear, lemon pith and white flowers, with iodine and honey nuances adding depth. Smooth and broad on entry, then brighter in the mid-palate, offering vibrant, mineral-accented orchard fruit and bitter citrus flavors and a note of sweet butter. Finishes sappy and extremely long, with resonating mineral and spice notes. Great energy and power.

Drink Dates 2013-2018

The 2010 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard is one of the most reticent wines in this range. Hints of butter, passion fruit and French oak emerge over time, but the 2010 remains difficult to assess as the structural elements currently dominate. There is a lot going on in the glass, though. This is one of the few 2010s that could benefit from another 6-12 months in bottle, as the elements aren't quite in place yet. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.

Very tight and rich, presenting a dense core of white peach, nectarine, citrus and crushed rock. Shows impressive balance, purity, focus and persistence, ending with a dash of vanilla. Will only improve with time.

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.
