2016 Linsteadt Barbera - "Winemaker Rusty Folena has been sourcing this vineyard for some time now, and he knows how to draw the nuance out of the fruit.  this vintage finished at 12.5% alcohol, which can make for a lighter textured wine, but fear not - there's plenty of supple tannic structure, and it's carrying rich red- and blue- berry fruit that rides atop the variety's signature racy acidity, and a dash of leafy herb character adds depth and complexity.  Give this a little cellar time, or a long decant near term."  92 points - Rich Cook (1/2021) 

2017 Linsteadt Barbera - "As pure in its display of Barbera fruit as any example in memory, Noceto's 2017 Linsteadt rendition is, quite simply, a beautifully made wine.  It is optimally ripe and not a whit more than needs to be with a judicious veneer of sweet oak set atop its very deep, red-berry fruit, and it exhibits superb balance and a lengthy finish that seems to extend a bit more with each sip.  "Classy" is a term that rarely comes to mind when thinking about Barbera, but very classy this one is, and those open to expanding their vinous horizons beyond the usual are highly encouraged to seek a few bottles out.  It is that good."  2 STARS | GOOD VALUE | 91 points - Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (10/2021)
