The 2019 GSM is a powerful, inward wine that is going to need at least a few years to come together. Ripe dark cherry, plum, cedar, tobacco and incense add to its brooding personality. Muscular tannins need time to soften. There is a lot of wine here, that much is obvious.
Score: 92 points -- Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 2021
Bob Lindquist is a Santa Barbara veteran who has been making compelling wines for decades. These days, Lindquist has his own labels, but the wines are quite similar in style to those that brought him so much acclaim at Qupé, specifically white and red Rhônes.
