About

98

This blockbuster new release reminds us of favorite Cult Cabernets such as Dalle Valle and Scarecrow. The luxuriously silky texture leads to intensely delicious dark fruit flavors leap from the glass including cassis, plums, blackberry and graphite that meld together for a voluptuous experience now (after decanting). The finish is tightly wound and boasts prodigious notes of mocha, pipe tobacco, and dark chocolate covered espresso beans. Highly recommended as a cellar selection to track the evolution of this masterpiece now through 2030.

Made by the incredibly talented Celia Welch, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a rocky site located just above Odette, in the Stags Leap District. It’s an ethereal, elegant expression of Cabernet Sauvignon and boasts a vivid purple color as well as medium to full-bodied notes of crème de cassis, dried flowers, cedarwood, and spice. With integrated acidity, fine yet present tannins, and nothing out of place, it should evolve beautifully for two decades or more. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040

Very deep purple-black colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District sings of fragrant earth, truffles and wood smoke notions with a core of preserved plums, black cherry compote and peppered salami with a waft of potpourri. Firm, grainy and packed with tightly wound, muscular black fruit, it has stacks of earthy layers and a very long mineral-tinged finish.

Lindstrom's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is superb. Rich, explosive and dense, yet also light on its feet, the 2016 captures all the best qualities of this rugged Stags Leap site. Inky red and purplish berry fruit, lavender, spice, and mint are all woven together in an utterly exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon. Like so many wines in this vintage, the Lindstrom Cabernet is driven by a palpable sense of energy.
