Aromas of stone fruits and spring flowers. Great sweetness and density of fruit. Offers captivating perfume of white flowers combined with underlying minerality. Harmonious, complete. Delicious now. Our chardonnay vineyard is planted with budwood from the Mount Eden/Martin Ray Vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Those vineyards consisted of ungrafted vines whose history is directly traced to the cuttings that Paul Masson brought from Burgundy to California.

Wine AdvocateThe 1999 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard boasts a phenomenal perfume of sweet white corn mixed with wet rocks, candied citrus, smoke, and tropical fruit. It is full-bodied, with remarkable length and intensity. This brilliant offering should last 5-6 years.

Wine SpectatorLoads of rich, viscous fig, apricot, nectarine and a touch of honey is this deeply concentrated, almost syrupy bottling. Finishes with a luxurious aftertaste of exotic spices. Drink now through 2006. 1,853 cases made.
