Winemaker Notes

The aromas of the Lindstrom 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon show an intensity of purple berry fruits: boysenberries, cassis sirup, dark blackberries. These are joined by base notes of toasted pecans, dark chocolate, and a touch of sweet baking spices. Subtle hints of liquid cherry add complexity. On the palate, the entry is soft and broad, yet with enough grip to assure longevity. The fresh berry aromas echo back to the palate; warm berries, liquid-centered chocolate-covered cherries, warm blackberry pie with a waft of toasted wheat and a touch of creamy vanilla.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deeply expressive black and blue fruit, menthol, violets and spices burst from the inky-colored 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon. A totally round, seamless wine, the 2009 is endowed with serious depth and power. Despite its considerable immediate appeal, the 2009 needs time in the glass to open up. As that happens, smoke, tar, licorice and scorched earth notes become more prominent, lending an air of gravitas. Today, the tannins retain some firmness, but as they begin to soften, the 2009 will offer considerable pleasure. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2029.

Lindstrom, Napa Valley, California
Each year, Lindstrom Wines produces just two single vineyard, estate-grown wines: a Cabernet Sauvignon, using a selection of the very finest grapes from their 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.

Napa Valley

Red Wine

View all wine

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, and in a short span of time, Napa Valley is a relative newcomer in the world of prestigious red wine regions. While the 1960s brought a few determined growers to the valley, by the 1970s Napa Valley already had shown the world its ability to compete head-to-head with the esteemed region of Bordeaux. The victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris, followed by Robert Parker’s 100-point perfect score awarded to the Groth 1985 Cabernet Sauvignon brought plenty of acclaim to the valley.

Though Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly still dominates Napa Valley in every way, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and enjoying plenty of recognition, other red varieties certainly thrive here as well. Important but often overlooked include Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded for single varietal wines or for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel still exists in the valley and in its mountain appellations, representing an important historical stronghold for the region. Pinot noir can be produced but mainly in the cooler southern parts of the valley close to the San Pablo Bay.

What makes Napa such an amazing place for the production of red wines? Mainly it is a combination of ideal weather patterns and incredible soil variations. A balance of hot days and cool nights from the cool moist air of the San Pablo Bay or elevation, or both, allows even and slow ripening of its grapes. Furthermore the valley and its more mountainous sub appellations claim over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—all ideal for world-class red wine production.
