Issue Issue 150

Saturated red. Very expressive, pure aromas of raspberry, blackberry, violet, Asian spices and bitter chocolate. Then velvety and broad, with sweet, fruit-driven flavors of black raspberry and boysenberry. An alluring, suave style, expanding on the back half and finishing with a fine dusting of tannins and spices.

The 2008 Pinot Noir Lindsay Estate Cuvee Agustina, which comes mostly from the Calera clone, is a firmer structured, more tannic and reserved effort than the regular bottling. It cuts a broad swath across the palate with lots of berry fruit and foresty notes, but it is less revealing than its sibling. Give this impressive Pinot 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 10-15 years.

Drink Dates 2011-2017

Firm and concentrated, featuring a mix of smoky oak, ripe plum, wild berry and fresh earth flavors, as well as chewy tannins. This is a rustic, rough-hewn wine now that may reward cellaring. 232 cases made.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
