Previously recommended no tastng note given. Following the brilliant success of Kistler's 2007s Steve Kistler and his sidekick Mark Bixler deserve kudos for what they have achieved in the more challenging 2008 vintage. This is the first vintage in which 100% of the fermentations were indigenous and fortunately all their Sonoma Coast vineyards were far enough south that they were not tainted by any of the smoke from the ferocious fires that spread through Mendocino. The 2008s appear to be slightly more fruit-forward with a touch less minerality than the 2007s. They are full-bodied impressively endowed wines with the Chardonnays best drunk during their first 5-7 years of life and the Pinot Noirs during their first 10-12.

High-pitched very pure aromas of Meyer lemon crushed stone iodine white pepper and honeysuckle with late-arriving notes of quinine and tarragon. Highly concentrated wine with superb depth and vivacity to its citrus floral and gripping mineral flavors. This seems as much a solid as a liquid. Its endless finish is strikingly tactile and leaves intense citrus and chalk notes behind. -Josh Raynolds
