99 Points Rare new single vineyard Pinot Noir release from one of California's most celebrated winemakers Paul Hobbs. 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." 96 Points Robert Parker: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Katherine Lindsay Estate is still in barrel and has a pale to medium ruby-purple color. It explodes out of the glass with a gorgeous perfume of violet, dried coconut and mixed berry preserves with accents of bergamot, lilac, pink peppercorn and prosciutto with an underlying earthiness. Medium to full-bodied, it's über silky and perfumed, with a firm but finely grained frame and seamlessly woven freshness, finishing very long and layered. This is a beauty! 700 cases are expected to be made and released in August 2020."
