"Ultimately, of course, it is human intervention that turns a landscape into a vinescape. Selection of plant material, methods of cultivation and, perhaps most important, timing of the harvest have everything to do with how the land is expressed in wines."
—Rod Smith, Unlocking the Secrets of Terroir

While searching for a small vineyard to explore their love of wine and agriculture, the Lindstroms discovered a beautiful 20-acre hilltop property in Stags Leap. Though surrounded by world-class wineries, this idyllic site remained unplanted due to its steep hillsides and complex topography. The Lindstroms believed that if approached with patience and artistry, the land possessed all the qualities necessary to produce Cabernet Sauvignon of rare depth and power.
Each year, Lindstrom Wines produces a single, estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, using a selection of the very finest grapes from our four acre hilltop Nicali Vineyard in the heart of the Stags Leap District. A true artisan wine, handmade by acclaimed winemaker Celia Welch, this limited bottling is carefully crafted in small lots and specially blended to express the unique characteristics of each vintage. The result is a great Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon reflecting the essence of the terroir of our meticulously hand-farmed vineyard with its distinctive tapestry of 11 separate vineyard blocks.
