Lindstrom 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon

While moderate rains during the winter months seemed to promise a productive year, continued rain during May's flowering period cut the wine grape harvest to a mere fraction of the vineyard's normal potential. While the harvest was short on production, the quality benefitted from the shortfall. The twelve individual blocks of Nicali Vineyard, home to Lindstrom Cabernet, were harvested by hand between September 11 and 15, 2015.

Individual blocks were destemmed, sorted by hand, and gently crushed into small fermenters for approximately 4 weeks of skin contact prior to pressing. The wine, a blend of all twelve blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon, was aged in 60% new French oak for 19 months prior to bottling without fining or filtration.

One of the most fruit-forward offerings from this vineyard, the 2015 Lindstrom Stags Leap District Cabernet bursts with dark cherry aromas, surrounded by notes of cinnamon bark, blueberry jam, and dark toasty oak tones. Broad, juicy and velvety-soft at entry, the bright fruit acidity at the center of the palate impression creates balance while the density of the tannins provides structure. The finish echoes the fruit-forward aromas, but with base notes of black tea and a touch of graphite to add gravitas.

260 cases were produced.
