2015 Kistler Cuvée Cathleen Vineyard ChardonnayJoin To Purchase
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chardonnay Cuvée Cathleen is an absolute knock-out! Opening with gregarious nectarine, pink grapefruit and green guava scents over nuances of ginger ale, brioche, crushed cashews and mandarin peel, the palate delivers mouth-coating stone fruit and tropical flavors generously accented by baking spices. It has a decadently creamy texture and oodles of freshness to lift your spirits, finishing very long with a compelling zesty kick.
The 2015 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard Cuvée Cathleen is ample, full-bodied and distinctive, as it always is. Distinctly mineral and savory, the Cuvée Cathleen captures the magic of this tenderloin within the west-facing section of Steve Kistler's original Moon Mountain vineyard. As always, the Cuvée Cathleen is a Chardonnay of phenolic intensity and structure, with explosive energy and tons of personality.
