Winemaker's Notes:

First impressions of the aromas from this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon show lovely, perfumed essence of raspberries, roses and a touch of lilac, with darker cherry tones adding depth and a sense of mature-fruit. The sweet fruit character is remarkably focused and intense, reflecting its steep hillside origins. On the palate, the wine offers an elegant, full-bodied, soft, silky entry, with dark, warm berry fruit character. The mid-palate impression adds a subtle note of tobacco leaf and toasty vanilla, with just a hint of anise/spice adding complexity as the fresh berry notes linger. The finish is equally rich, exhibiting layers of complexity and a dense, mouth-coating texture. The overall density and concentration of the palate impression results from the very rocky vineyard source of this dark, rich cabernet.

About Lindstrom:

Each year, Lindstrom Wines produces just two single vineyard, estate-grown wines: a Cabernet Sauvignon, using a selection of the very finest grapes from our four acre hilltop Nicali Vineyard in the heart of the Stags Leap District, and a Pinot Noir produced from carefully sourced grapes grown at the famed Dutton Ranch vineyard in Russian River Valley. These are truly artisan wines, handmade by acclaimed winemaker, Celia Welch, which are crafted in small lots and specially blended to express the unique characteristics of each vintage.
