Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Dark, rich and plummy, with wonderful complexity, a tightly focused core of black cherry, wild berry, chocolate and pretty, toasty oak. Firm and deep, it's drinkable now.--California Pinot Noir retrospective.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Owner/wine-maker Steve Kistler, admirably supported by his omnipresent sidekick, Mark Bixler, continues to make wines of extraordinary richness and complexity. Their Chardonnay production has risen to nearly 18,000 cases, all of it bottled without fining or filtration. I joked with Kistler and Bixler after tasting through the remarkable set of nine Sonoma Chardonnays that while it would take me five days of tasting in Burgundy to find this many great Chardonnays, it took me less than two hours at Kistler Vineyards, an observation that demonstrates just what heights California vintners are now achieving. Kistler is still in the process of releasing their 1993s. Most of the 1994s will be released in 1996 with a handful of them released in 1997. This high quality winery is doing everything right, which is reflected in the consistency, ageworthiness, and brilliance of these wines.

Kistler Vineyards, California
Kistler Vineyards  Winery Image
Founded in 1978, Kistler Vineyards is a small, family-owned and operated winery specializing in the production of Burgundian style Chardonnay and limited amounts of Pinot Noir. Grapes are estate grown and purchased from vineyards in Sonoma County. In 1992, Kistler Vineyards moved all production to its Vine Hill Road Vineyard in the Russian River Valley.

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
