Description

A place of abundant natural beauty, Lynmar Estate borders the western edge of the Laguna de Santa Rosa, the largest tributary of the Russian River, and Sonoma County’s richest wildlife preserve. Situated just 12 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Lynmar Estate benefits from the influences of a maritime climate. The ebb and flow of warm days and cool evenings create an ideal climate for cultivating Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. At its heart lies the Quail Hill Vineyard where it all began 40 years ago, with 17 distinct blocks planted with 14 Pinot Noir and 4 Chardonnay clones that make up the backbone of Lynmar’s wine collection. A true jewel of the Russian River Valley, Wine Spectator declared Quail Hill Vineyard one of the best Pinot Noir vineyards in Sonoma County. A deep crimson colour in the glass leads to notes of elderberry, blackberry pie and cocoa powder. A soft and rich entry on the palate gives hints of black tea, fresh blueberry and newly cut redwood. The textured finish reminisces with hints of blueberry, black tea and forest floor.
