This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

1997 Kistler

Drinking at home.

1997 Kistler Chardonnay Dutton Ranch - definitely oxidized now. Ripe and fragrant on the nose, very buttery, toasty. Honestly this wine was very alluring just on the nose and on the palate. However, the wine was also halfway between being too ripe while still retaining a hint of acidity. There was a slight bitterness mid-palate, and much later on with a couple of hours of aeration there were some coffee notes which emerged.
