Celia Welch Tasting Notes: “This rocky, hillside vineyard is quite consistent at producing wines of tremendous concentration both in flavor and texture, and the 2016 vintage is a delicious example of this. The dark berry and cocoa notes in the aromas foretell the intensity of flavor at first taste. With blackberries, cassis, chai tea, and cocoa powder flavors completely intertwined, the texture is surprisingly approachable even at release. Midpalate structure and concentration melt into supple tannins as the fresh fruit and spice flavors carry the finish with a sense of lush, juicy red cherries.”

Jeb Dunnuck 96 Points: “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”
Robert Parker 95+ Points: “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.”
Vinous 96 Points: “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.”
