The 2013 Lindsay's Pinot Noir displays enchanting aromas of earthy cedar, bright boysenberry fruit and black pepper. The moderate tannins are wrapped around a combination of dark plum and cran-raspberry flavors that finish into lingering notesof sweet tobacco leaf and black pepper.
93 Points - Wine Spectator Decant this to release it from its initial reduction and you’ll find a brisk, transparent Santa Rita Hills pinot noir that presents the region’s dark, small-berried fruit concentration without sweetness or noticeable alcohol. There’s a refreshing greenness to the aroma, like juniper and jasmine tea, which combines with bright flavors of black raspberries, plum skin and salt—it’s a vivacious coastal tonic to serve with pan-roasted halibut and sea beans. *Best Buy*
92 Points - Wine Enthusiast There's a very savory, gamy element on the nose of this wine, which shows wild berries, woody shrubs, rusty iron and turned forest-floor aromas. The palate is punchy at first, with decent acidity and cranberry-plum-raspberry flavors, then clings to a pencil-lead core deeper into the sip. It offers quite a bit of complexity.
