"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."

"The 2016 Lindstrom “sings of fragrant earth, truffles and wood smoke notions with a core of preserved plums, black cherry compote…."

"It's an ethereal, elegant expression of Cabernet Sauvignon…."

"...a gorgeous 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon ... Classy and polished, the 2015 definitely reflects the ripeness of the vintage, and yet all the elements are very nicely balanced."

"Lindstrom's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon has turned out beautifully. Deep, intense and richly textured, the 2014 graces the palate….Rich and unctuous yet medium in body, the 2014 possesses lovely balance and plenty of class."

"A wine of pedigree and distinction, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District has turned out as well as I had hoped. Creamy and expressive, with striking depth, the 2013 possesses notable nuance in its dark, inky flavors. Sweet floral and spice notes add layers of aromatic complexity throughout."

"There's a lot to like here, from the initial drive of earth-and-graphite-laced blueberry, cassis and dried berry flavors to the touches of cedary oak and crushed rock minerality. A long version, with gripping tannins. Drink now through 2017."

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon offers attractive sweet cassis and tobacco leaf aromas intermixed with notions of licorice and loamy soil, sexy… opulent and pure..."

"A subtle, understated wine that builds intensity and depth, with the mix of dark berry, mocha, dried herb and fresh earth flavors gaining nuance and length, gliding along on the finish. "

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is another huge, dark, imposing wine. Black olives, licorice, smoke and grilled herbs all come through nicely in this vivid Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2010 isn't markedly different from the 2009 stylistically, suggesting it is the terroir that marks the wine to the greatest degree. There is a bit more tannin and overall structure here, though, so readers will have to be patient. Huge layers of dark fruit laced with exotic overtones of tar, incense and licorice saturate the palate on the finish. The only problem with the 2010 will be finding it, as production is down sharply from 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030. Lindstrom's Nicali Vineyard in Stags' Leap is notable for a cool microclimate that produces small grapes packed with flavor, structure and incredible personality. "
