The 2019 Syrah Bien Nacido Z Block impresses with its creamy, layered personality. A healthy dollop (33%) of whole clusters lifts the dark Syrah fruit. The 2019 is exquisitely beautiful, but it also needs at least a few years to show the full breadth of its aromatics. Today, the 2019 is decidedly young and almost primary.
Score: 93 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.
