Winemaker's Notes:

The aromas of the Lindstrom 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon display an intensity of very focused red berry essences (raspberry, red cassis, cranberry), which are so focused that they almost seem perfume-like. These berry notes intermingle with darker, more earth-driven notes of bay leaf, cedar bark, and a touch of chocolate. On the palate, the entry shows a combination of warm raspberries and a hint of sage/tarragon. The texture at entry is broad, soft and warm, and the mouthfeel at the mid-palate stays consistently broad. Although the flavors present themselves boldly, the wine weight and texture show elegances so beautifully displayed in the aromas, with the bright, focused sweet red fruit flavors lingering as the other wine flavors slowly fade.

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.
