Lindstrom 2016 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir


After several years of drought, 2016 brought us abundant rain during the winter months followed by near-perfect weather during the spring, summer, and autumn seasons. Several very warm periods punctuated August and September, which helped pop the flavors in the grapes into their fullest potential. The grapes for the 2016 Lindstrom Pinot Noir were harvested by hand in early September 2016, fermented in open top tanks, pressed gently then aged in French oak barrels for approximately 16 months prior to bottling without fining or filtration.

This Pinot Noir, from the Russian River Valley AVA of Sonoma County, shows its coastal heritage with a dark, rich color and aromas of baked cherries, freshly ground clove, and warm earth. On the palate it shows bright fruit notes front and center, supported by a fresh acidity and broad, satiny tannins. The dominant impression of bright fruit carries through the midpalate and lingers as the base notes of vanilla, cedar and spice slowly fade. This complex Pinot Noir has the core strength to age gracefully for 15 years, but is already generous in its depth and intensity.

A total of 250 cases were produced.
