Winemaker's Notes:

Intense and bright ruby in color, notes of fresh black cherries and blackberries are followed by toasty hints of vanilla coming from the French oak barrels. The wine carries a great freshness with mint and eucalyptus scents while spices of black pepper and strawberries blend together in the background. The result is a generous and complex aroma of fresh Pacific Ocean flowers blooming during spring time. The mouth feel is ample and the wine develops on the palate with superb structure, silky tannins and balanced acidity. French oak follows bright cherry notes on the finish.

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.
