2012 Lynmar Estate Five Sisters Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., $100. SF. A special barrel selection consisting of five barrels. Includes Mt Eden, Swan, Calera, and Quail Hill selections. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. A full-bodied, voluptuous wine, with exuberant aromas and flavors of black cherry, black plum and black raspberry with a subtle earthy underpinning. Very smooth and seductive on the palate with balanced tannins and a remarkable finish that brings you to attention. This is a connoisseur’s wine that should age ten years effortlessly. Score: 94.
