Pale yellow. Complex aroma of crushed rocks, minerals, and spring flowers. Intensely flavored, penetrating, and precise, with terrific backbone to its white peach and stone flavors. Delicious now.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Cathleen is a selection of the finest lots from all the vineyards, but most of it comes from the Kistler Vineyard. Full-bodied, firm, and backward, it is behaving more like a red wine than a Chardonnay. It boasts fabulous concentration, superb ripeness, plenty of honeysuckle, orange rind, and tropical fruit characteristics, copious minerality, and enormous length as well as richness. This beauty is as good as any Chardonnay made in either the New or Old World.

Robert Parker, December 2006
