The 2009 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard, on the other hand, bursts onto the palate with endless layers of white peaches, apricots and white flowers. The deep texture turns delicate and haunting on the finish. There is an exotic, floral note that is very much unique to this bottling that Steve Kistler ascribes to the Mt. Eden and Wente selections planted on this site. This is a marvelously complete, stunning wine.

Vinous (Stephen Tanzer)
Green-tinged gold. Deep, mineral-accented aromas of Poire Willaim, lemon pith and iodine, complicated by a smoky, leesy nuance and slow-building florality. Shows an intriguing blend of richness and energy, offering palate-staining orchard fruit and ginger flavors underscored by dusty minerals and white pepper. Notes of jasmine and chamomile cling on the sappy, strikingly powerful, focused finish.
