Winemaker Notes

This vineyard produces one of our most complete and complex Chardonnays, and nears perfection on an annual basis.

Critical Acclaim

RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Named after one of Kistler’s daughters, the 2003 Chardonnay Cuvee Kathleen, a selection of the very best barrels from the Kistler Vineyard, is undeniably sexy, full-throttle stuff. About 500 cases of this were made in 2003, and the wine comes across as a combination of the best that California can do with the complexity, minerality, and definition of a French white Burgundy. Very rich tropical fruits intermixed with some citrus oil, crushed rocks, and steely backbone provide a canvas where a large-scaled yet incredibly elegant, complex wine has been produced. This is a beauty, very long, impressive, and noble.
Range: 98-100

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.

Sonoma Mountain Wine

Sonoma Valley, California

Defined more by altitude than geographical outline, the Sonoma Mountain appellation occupies elevations between 400 and 1,200 feet on the northern and eastern slopes of the actual Sonoma Mountain and is part of the greater Sonoma Valley appellation. The mountain reaches 2,400 feet; its hills separate the cooling winds of Petaluma Gap from the Sonoma Valley.

On a cooler western flank, Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Syrah enjoy a great deal of success. Vineyards on its warmer, eastern side, interspersed with heavily forested areas, tend to include Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, and Syrah. Given its complexity of topography and mesoclimates, Sonoma Mountain excels with a wide range of grape varieties.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
