Kistler 2018 Cuvee Cathleen Chardonnay  - rare new release.

97+ Points Robert Parker:  "The Kistler 2018 Chardonnay Cuvée Cathleen opens slowly on the nose, with toast, iodine and flint to begin, segueing to aromas of apple pie, quince paste, honeycomb, hazelnuts, pastry and loads upon loads of floral nuances. Medium-bodied, it explodes in the mouth, uber silky and packing in more flavor than seems possible, which lingers and is then refreshed by tangy acidity and rocky minerality, finishing extraordinarily long with continually developing flavors. Unbelievable!"

..the single-vineyard wines all represent much smaller quantities of wine. There have been several noticeable changes in the Kistler wines over the last few years, as they are certainly picking the Pinot Noir at an earlier date and going for less extraction, more fragrance and delicacy. The Chardonnays are still powerful wines but they have backed off the new oak to about 40%. (About 10 years ago, it was around 60%.) Other than that they are still potent and rich Chardonnays that are meant to be drunk in their first 4-6 years of life. It is my experience that aging Kistler wine has not been generally as successful as I would have hoped.."
