2007 Lynmar Estate Wente Selection Russian River Valley Chardonnay

14.4% alc., pH 3.44, 880 cases, $35. Sourced from two small vineyards, mostly natural fermentation, aged in 45% new French oak barrels for 14 months 100% MLF. A one-time bottling as the fruit will no longer be available to Lynmar. · This was clearly the group’s favorite. Terrific nose featuring cut flowers, roasted nuts and spices. Rich and viscous on the palate with impressive persistence of the citrus and spicy notes on the bright finish. Very good. Reviewed June 22, 2010
