2006 Lynmar Estate Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., 3,196 cases, $40. This is a blend of lots from Lynmar’s 47-acre Quail Hill Vineyard as well as grapes from local growers. · This wine is a cherry choo-choo. Really attractive cherry aromas with a hint of oak and candied apple lead to a silky core of fresh and bright cherries, an undertone of strawberries and the slightest oak. Soft tannins complete the harmonious picture. For an entry wine, this is stunning. Reviewed January 14, 2009
