LINDSTROM Pinot Noir, Russian River
WHY WE LOVE IT:
- A rarity - Celia doesn't make many Pinot's
- Single vineyard, Dutton Ranch, 100% Pinot
- Wildcrafted wine that speaks to our passion
WINEMAKER: Legendary Celia Welch (Nicali, REWA, Keever, Barbour Vineyards) 100 point winemaker inducted into Food & Wine Hall of Fame.
WHAT WE TASTED: Abundance of dark cherry and cola notes enhanced by cardamom, pink peppercorn and raspberry jam aromas. Sweet earth, cedar bark, anise, oak leaf and caramel flavors weave among those of fruit and spice. Mid palate just keeps going! Ripe and complex throughout the long finish.
