2017 Lynmar Estate Old Vines Quail Hill Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $80. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Charming aromas of cherry, rose petal and baking spices. I love the floral aspect of the nose, like wild cherry sprinkled with flowers. Mid-weight flavors of black cherry, black raspberry, blackberry and dark chocolate address the palate without overreaching.The mouthfeel is luxurious, the tannins are in line and the finish is long and rewarding. Still exceptional when tasted the following day from a previously opened bottle. An old vine treasure. Score: 95. Reviewed August 27, 2020
