    (1999 Vintage) Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 102, May/June 2002 Slightly hazy appearance and bit more yellow than the McCrea. Richer, more perfumed aromas of orange blossom, nuts, spices and dried fruits. Concentrated, dense and suave, with lively balancing acidity and floral lift. Kistler describes this wine as "one of our softer '99s." Finishes with very good length. A strong note of coconut lingers in the empty glass.
