Tasting Notes from's 10th Annual Kistler Vineyard Dinner at Red Eye Grill.

In our opinion Steve Kistler of Kistler Vineyards makes some of the best Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs in California. That is why we hosted our 10th Kistler Vineyard dinner event.

Entry Wine:

Kistler Vineyard Stone Flat Vineyard Chardonnay 2006, Sonoma Coast (RP - 95-96 pts)

Flight #1:
