95 Points Robert Parker:  "The Kistler 2018 Chardonnay Laguna Ridge Vineyard is only bottled in magnum. It has delicate aromas of flint, saline and roasted almonds with wafts of floral perfume over a core of toasty peaches plus hints of quince paste and beeswax. Medium-bodied, it slowly gains amplitude in the mouth, beginning minerally and transforming to toasty, iodine-tinged fruits. It has very fresh, uplifting acidity and finishes incredibly long with shifting flavor layers.

...Kistler Vineyards remains one of the absolute benchmark producers of great Sonoma Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, sitting right up there with the highest quality examples of these grapes from throughout the world. While the wines come from as wide a range of top terroirs as Sonoma can provide, interestingly nearly all of the Chardonnays are produced from a proprietary selection of Wente clones taken from a Larry Hyde block in the early 1980s. The exception is the Kistler Vineyard, which contains some original Martin Ray Mount Eden clonal material. This can be found in the straight Kistler Vineyard Chardonnay bottling, as opposed to the Cuvee Cathleen, which is mainly Wente selection. All the vineyard-designate Chardonnays are produced in precisely the same manner, meaning the differences between them are almost exclusively down to the differences in terroir. And as readers will see from my notes, the differences are striking."
