Lynmar Estate

Quail Hill Pinot Noir 2018

Russian River Valley


This incredible Pinot Noir from Lynmar’s sustainably farmed Quail Hill Estate vineyard blends a selection of over 15 clones, resulting in a wine of incredible depth and nuance.


Lynmar’s 45-acre Quail Hill Vineyard is comprised of fourteen distinguished Pinot Noir clones. All of them are included in this signature estate blend, which harmonizes the complexity of this extraordinary site, and the pure, elegant expression
of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.


Lynmar’s state-of-the-art, multilevel, gravity-flow winery allows the gentlest treatment of the grapes as they arrive in the cellar. Harvested in the cool, early morning hours, the delicate clusters are transferred to the press with a forklift to avoid pumping. The juice is drained by gravity, then allowed to settle and complete fermentation before being transferred to aging vessels.

This wine spends 14 months in French oak barrels, 46% new.

Tasting Notes

A glowing garnet in the glass, the Quail Hill Pinot Noir offers bright aromas of brambly fruits, hibiscus flower, black tea, allspice and cherry kirsch. Flavors of plum, cedar, clove and orange zest shine through the beautifully textured palate. A long supple finish echoes hints of wild berry and forest floor.
