95 points "94-96 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): The 2012 Chardonnay Vine Hill Vineyard is the most compact of the three Kistler Russian River Chardonnays. Bright, focused and taut to the core, the 2012 is laced with citrus, white flowers, crushed rocks and green pears, all in a wine endowed with superb energy and pure class. Expressive floral notes add lift on the finish. The Vine Hill is shaping up to be a real beauty. Drink: 2015-2022. (Feb 2014) " Best 2015-2022
