Winemaker Notes

The wine radiates a ruby red luminescence with inviting aromas of Bing cherry, rose petals, and earl grey tea. Generous flavors of wild blueberry and pomegranate are bolstered by notes of forest pine and red slate minerality. The beguiling texture and balanced acidity are surrounded by silky tannins from start to finish making this a readily approachable wine that thrills the palate.


99 Points Jeb Dunnuck

The flagship release, the 2018 Pinot Noir Katherine Lindsay Estate comes from the Russian River Valley and saw 14% stems and 15 months in 53% new French oak. Medium ruby, with notes of raspberries, spice box, dried cherries, and assorted flowery incense and tea notes, it's wonderfully complex and medium to full-bodied, with seamless tannins and a great finish. Despite coming from the Russian River, it almost has a Sonoma Coast-like style in its perfumed aromatics and beautiful elegance.


97 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Pinot Noir Cuvée Agustina Katherine Lindsay Estate is a selection of three blocks, normally composed of Calera and Swan clone fruit, but Paul Hobbs says, "This year, we included a bit of 115 clone instead of just using the heritage clones." The Augustina is an incredibly stunning wine, with a fabulous perfume of violets, lilac and dried herbs accenting a deep core of cherry pie plus notes of cured meats and Earl Grey tea. In the mouth, it offers explosive, concentrated, layered flavors in a satiny frame with lively freshness and a very, very long finish.

 

94 Points Wine Spectator

Fleshy and rich, featuring juicy dark currant and raspberry tart flavors, with savory and sanguine accents. Dried wild herb notes emerge midpalate, leading to a flint- and slate-filled finish that exhibits a creamy texture.


94 Points James Suckling

This is a dense, layered pinot with attractive richness and spiciness. Lightly chewy tannins. Rich and structured. Needs time to soften.
