About Lindstrom

Lindstrom Wines produces a single, estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon each year, using a selection of the finest grapes from their four-acre hilltop Nicali Vineyard in Stags Leap, CA. Their Pinot Noir is sourced from Dutton Ranch vineyards, while the Lindstrom wines are vinified under the lead of winemaker Celia Welch.

When searching for a small vineyard, Greg and Carol Lindstrom discovered a 20-acre hilltop property in Stags Leap, surrounded by vineyards owned by Stags Leap Wine Cellars, Shafer Vineyards, and Joseph Phelps Vineyards. On steep hillsides and difficult terrain, they planted their Nicali vineyard (named for daughters Nicole and Ali) with four separate clones of Cabernet.

To create a wine that honors this philosophy, Celia applies a gentle hand during winemaking, allowing the fruit to express its natural character. Highlighted by voluptuous flavors of black cherry and dark chocolate, as well as nuanced elements derived from Nicali's distinctive tapestry of 12 separate vineyard blocks, Lindstrom Cabernet Sauvignon is a true artisan wine. Patiently aged in new French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered, only a modest 325 cases were produced of their inaugural 2005 vintage. Beautifully balanced now, this wine has a rich expressive character that evokes the spirit of the Stags Leap District and promises to reward cellaring in the years to come.
