2016 Lindstrom Wines Cabernet Sauvignon Stag's Leap District (750ml)
"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." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
The same all-star team behind famed Scarecrow is leading the charge for this 'superb' Stag's Leap Cabernet. Winemaker Celia Welch and vineyard Manager Mike Wolf have absolutely hit a home run here as the wine is flat out delicious. We loved the wine when we recently tasted it and we are recommending this to Napa and Bordeaux aficionados. The critics also have given Lindstrom unanimous praise and in our opinion, it is undervalued given the pedigree. If you want an under the radar insider gem that will delight, this is it!
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 96 points Jeb Dunnuck
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.95 points Wine Advocate
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
