95 points "The 2009 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Cathleen, from Wente clones, saturates the palate with honey, yellow flowers, marzipan, tangerine and apricots. It possesses stunning depth and intensity, along with persistent saline notes that add lift on the creamy, expansive finish. The Cuvee Cathleen is considerably richer than the straight Kistler Vineyard. Both are striking; which one readers ultimately prefer is strictly personal preference. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.

95 points "95 points Vinous The 2013 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard Cuvée Cathleen is sourced from a parcel on the property planted with Wente Clone Chardonnay on modern rootstock, which seems to bring out more of the phenolic, mountain structure of the site. Deeply layered, resonant and exotic, the Cuvée Cathleen is showing beautifully today. (3/2016)" Best 2016-2020
