Kistler Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard 2009, 750mL (WA96-98, ST95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Kistler Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2009
Region: US
Appellation: Russian River Valley, Sonoma County

WA96-98, ST95
Rated 96-98 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The spectacular 2009 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard rivals the 2009 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Cathleen (a selection of the best barrels). Both of these 2009s reveal abundant aromas of buttered citrus, crushed rock, brioche, honeysuckle, orange rind and citrus oil. They are full-bodied with zesty acidity and purity and the oak is pushed well to the background. As for the drinking curve on the 2009 Chardonnays, because of their perfumed styles, I suspect they will be delicious when released in a year and evolve for 5-8 years.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: Not only have the 2008s lived up to or exceeded their potential from last year`s barrel tastings, the 2009s appear to be fabulous as well. Of course, 2008 was a much more challenging vintage and 2009 was a cool year, much like 2005, with slightly lower alcohols and higher yields than the short crop of 2008. All of the 2009 Chardonnays finished with around 14+% alcohol levels and had more minerality than usual. Kistler`s bottled 2008s were all concentrated. The 2008 Chardonnays have the potential to last even longer than the 2009s given the fact that they are even more concentrated than those wines.`
