" The 2018 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Cathleen comes from slightly younger vines (planted in the 1990s) and is on the east side of this windy vineyard and gets more afternoon sun. This cuvée is always a riper, more opulent wine compared to the straight Kistler Vineyard release, and the 2018 is no exception, yielding incredible notes of Meyer lemon, nectarines, honeysuckle, grilled bread, and liquid rock-like minerality. One of those wines that offers incredible richness yet not a hint of heaviness, it's full-bodied, has a stacked mid-palate, gorgeous acidity, and a monster of a finish. Give bottles 2-4 years of bottle age, count yourself lucky, and enjoy over the following 15-20 years."
