“A very pleasant new discovery - very worthy wines”
Review of Lincourt Vineyards

Reviewed December 29, 2012

Lincourt is one of the many Solvang-area wineries producing a range of enjoyable wines.

This was our first stop for the weekend, so we bought sparingly (but we’ll be back). We got a bottle of their 2010 Two Sisters Pinot Noir. (It’s a curse having taste: This is the most expensive wine they were showing.) It’s a complex, aromatic pinot, with nice depth, layered red fruit flavors, and a long finish.

The 2011 Sauvignon Blanc had bright melon, pineapple, and peach to the nose. It’s a very tasty, structured Sauv Blsnc, fresh without being too dry/crisp.

The 2010 Merlot has a vivid floral nose, more tannins than usual (for the variety and region), and was a better Merlot than one usually finds. (We're hard to please on Merlots.)

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon (98% cab with just a dusting of syrah for seasoning, and barreled in stainless steel): Chocolate and coffee to the nose. A dark, structured cab with deep fruit pushing into raisin and black olive, mingled with coffee-chocolate. This is good now and surely hasn’t hit its prime age.

Of course, not all of their wines hit these high marks. They are experimental, and also poured some vintages that weren't really ready yet. All in fun, though, and our pourer, Jim, was a delight.

We went in to taste and while they were busy they completly ignored us. They never looked at us and welcomed us in. We stood there for about 5-8 min waiting for someone to speak to us and when no one did we left.
Would never ever go back there.
