2018 Lindquist "X Block - Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Syrah

SKU #1492352 94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2018 Syrah Bien Nacido-X Block comes from a great part of this historic vineyard and was two-thirds destemmed and brought up in Burgundy barrels (one-third new). Awesome Syrah notes of blackberries, peppered game, bouquet garni, and violets all emerge from the glass, followed by medium body, good concentration, a focused, elegant texture, and a great finish. This is a beautiful wine to drink over the coming 10-15 years. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This bottling takes a bit of time to emerge on the nose, but once it does, it doesn’t stop for days. Aromas of purple flowers, dark fruit and charred beef lead into a palate of roasted blackberry, charred black plum and cracked pepper. The tannins are firm but polished, ensuring a long life. Drink from 2022 to 2043. Cellar Selection* (MK) Inner quote mark (2/2021)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Beautifully perfumed and expressive, the 2018 Syrah Bien Nacido X Block wafts from the glass with lavender, ink black cherry, plum, licorice and dried herb notes. This graceful, exquisite Syrah from Bob Lindquist is a total knock-out. (AG) 93+ Inner quote mark (8/2020)
