2013 Kistler Cuvée Cathleen VineyardJoin To Purchase
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The 2013 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard Cuvée Cathleen is from a selection of their best parcels within this vineyard and offers a similar character to the Kistler Vineyard, but shows slightly more acidity and a more reserved, yet still concentrated full-bodied style. Drink over the next 4-6 years.
The 2013 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard Cuvée Cathleen is sourced from a parcel on the property planted with Wente Clone Chardonnay on modern rootstock, which seems to bring out more of the phenolic, mountain structure of the site. Deeply layered, resonant and exotic, the Cuvée Cathleen is showing beautifully today.
