2012 vintage. Meursault like to me. Lush fruit but salinity acidity and minerality keep it all together. Excellent

2011 ready to drink now. Spice, toasted oak, maple vanilla. If you like Carneros wines, this should fit the bill. Great with chicken, holds up well with other foods too... perhaps not the best pre-meal sipper.

So this was Sonoma Mountain - not coast. Everything you would expect from a Kistler but more - citrus but kit too much
