Tasting Notes:
rated: February 15, 2014 , Antonio Galloni (WS)
95 points "94-96 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): The 2012 Chardonnay Vine Hill Vineyard is the most compact of the three Kistler Russian River Chardonnays. Bright, focused and taut to the core, the 2012 is laced with citrus, white flowers, crushed rocks and green pears, all in a wine endowed with superb energy and pure class. Expressive floral notes add lift on the finish. The Vine Hill is shaping up to be a real beauty. Drink: 2015-2022. (Feb 2014) " Best 2015-2022

95 points "95 points Robert Parker: The honeysuckle, white currants, quince and wet rock/mineral notes of the crisp yet full-bodied, concentrated 2012 Chardonnay Vine Hill are fresh, lively, exuberant and, at the same time, powerful and elegant. This is a beauty, combining both elegance and depth. It should drink well for 5-7 years. (Jan 2015)" Best 2015-2022

92 points "92 points Offers a firm, deep core of lemon- and grapefruit-scented green apple and nectarine notes, maintaining a lively, zesty texture and vibrant acidity, ending long and clean. Drink now through 2022. J.L." Best 2015-2022
