Notes below are from Antonio Galloni in Vinous


Lindquist 2021 Marsanne Ibarra-Young Vineyard, Los Olivos Organic Not noted but elseware gallon notes that “Bob Lindquist has long had a magic touch with Marsanne.” - case $295  half case $155 


Lindquist 2021 Roussanne Bien Nacido Hillside, Santa Maria - laced with hints of apricot, pastry, butter, spice and tangerine oil. The 2021 offers plenty of Roussanne texture and exoticism, yet remains light on its feet. Bright acids lend brightness throughout. Few people know Bien Nacido better than Bob Lindquist.

Case $544 half case $269 


Lindquist 2021 Syrah Bien Nacido Z Block “- Santa Maria - a dense, powerful wine, yet very much in Bob Lindquist's style. Ripe dark cherry, plum, tobacco, leather and a kick of sweet French oak all build in the glass. This is a bit riper in profile than most of the wines in the range, but it works. Lindquist nicely balances plush textures with mid-weight structure.- case $575 half case $305
