Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Katherine Lindsay Estate is a little restrained at this youthful stage, revealing glimpses of damp earth, moss and fungi notes over a core of cranberries and pomegranate, plus a touches of chocolate box and lavender. The full-bodied palate is full-on concentrated with tons of earth and layers of red berry flavors framed by firm, ripe tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long. 95-97 points
Full and rich with lots of fruit and black-tea character. Dense and juicy. Fruit-forward style.
Deep carmine in the glass, the 2015 Pinot Noir hailing from the Katherine Lindsay Estate exemplifies the site from which it is grown with serious aromatics of red clay, iron, and violet. On the palate, earthen aromas give way to sumptuous dark cherry, briar fruit, crushed raspberry, and mountain strawberry framed by round, supple tannins, clean, bright acidity, and a long focused finish.
Pair with a traditional coq au vin, roast squab, or in early spring—fresh morel mushrooms.
