Kistler Hudson Vineyard Chardonnay 1997
Sourced since 1994. Located in the southwestern reaches of Napa County, where a rare mix of volcanic and marine sediment soils meet to produce a wine of depth and elegance, often touched with high pitched tones of iodine, and an oyster shell like minerality.
Wine SpectatorRipe and rich, with concentrated fig, honey and hazelnut, turning to hard oak, with firm, earthy flavors. Best to cellar short-term. Drink now through 2006. 536 cases made.
