Winemaker's Notes:

This outstanding vintage gives an immediate impression of depth and concentration in the glass, with a notably brilliant, bold garnet hue. Aromas are clearly dominated by red fruit tones – strawberry, and cherry pie punctuated by light cranberry notes. A darker underbelly quietly unfolds on the nose, bringing forth blackberry and Bing cherry that adds depth and layering. This Pinot Noir is clearly fruit driven, hitting the palate with a pronounced sense of balance that glides to a long finish with no hard edges. With a subtle spiciness and slight toast notes, this vintage is characterized by a broad, lush quality – offering firm structure and lovely concentration without ever edging towards heaviness. Tannins are perfectly ripe, adding structure and grip to a framework that will allow this wine to age well. Beautiful upon release, this Pinot Noir should continue to reward cellaring through 2014-2016.

About Lynmar Winery:

Lynmar Estate is situated on a unique and picturesque site with rolling vineyards bordered by the Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed. The vineyard,with vines over forty years old, 15 clones of Pinot Noir and 4 clones of Chardonnay has an array of canopy and rootstock combinations that yield exquisite fruit. Our state-of-the-art, gravity flow winery and caves is an ideal environment for making and aging ultra-premium wine. The gorgeous borders that surround the vineyards attract beneficial insects and hummingbirds, providing a natural barrier from pests.

Our vision is two-fold: (1) to meticulously caretake all the elements of the Estate, and continue to perfect and enhance the nuances of our winemaking, (2) to share it with people from all over the world who come here to have the experience of wine, food and place with a communion of friends, families, and colleagues.
