RATINGS

94Jeb Dunnuck

Lots of exotic citrus, pear, flower, and honeyed minerality notes…medium-bodied, juicy, elegant Chardonnay that picks up attractive green almond and nutty nuances on the palate.

92Wine Spectator

A juicy and richly fruity style, with plenty of ripe pear, apple and tropical fruit flavors that are loaded with cooking spices. Ends with buttered pastry notes on the sculpted finish.

PRODUCER

Lynmar Estate

Lynmar Estate is owned by Lynn and Anisya Fritz. Lynn Fritz bought Quail Hill Vineyard in 1980 and added acreage over the years. The vineyards are planted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay exclusively, and Pete Soergel is winemaker.

REGION

United States, California, Sonoma, Russian River Valley

Russian River Valley AVA is named for the river that meanders from Mendocino County in the north until it finally runs into the Pacific Ocean north of San Francisco. The AVA is cool thanks to its proximity to the northern California coast and the river, and grape growers must learn to deal with regular fog. Nevertheless in recent decades the AVA has become one of the best in the state, meaning that its wines often earn excellent reviews and have considerable cachet. The AVA status was awarded in 1983 and today the appellation has 15,000 vineyard acres. Chardonnay is the most widely planted grape though Pinot Noir has also been very successful in recent decades. Russian River Valley Pinot Noir are known for being rich, lush and filled with concentrated fruit and berry flavors. Russian River Pinot Noirs are today considered some of the best domestic Pinot Noirs.

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
