Lynmar Wine Club Dinner Summer 2009

Lynmar Estate Winery Gala Dinner


 … or why you should join wine clubs.

On August 29 we were blessed to be able to attend a club member appreciation dinner at Lynmar Estate Winery (just outside Santa Rosa).  Our hosts, winery owners Lynn and Anisya Fritz, provided a sumptuous meal in their elegantly modern winery with a stunning view of mountains to the east and of bio-intensive vegetable gardens all around.   What a terrific evening!  What terrific wine!. Rather than try to describe the event  in a thousand words, I’ll just put up a link to my Facebook slideshow

For the record, the Lynmar wines served with dinner included:

  • 2006 Russian River chardonnay: The best of what we love about Lynmar.  Just a hint of oak overlays citrus aromas and flavors of ripe fruit.
  • 2008 Rosé of Pinot Noir: Excellent balance between rosé lightness and pinot noir flavors. Very dry.
  • 2004 Quail Hill chardonnay: Somewhat more oak than the 2006 Russian River, but aging has smoothed this excellent vintage.
  • 2006 Russian River Valley pinot noir: More of the best of what we love about Lynmar.  Aromas of dark fruit followed by an explosion of blackberries and plums on the palate.
  • 2007 Quail Hill pinot noir: Actually still a bit young… as it was just released.  Age it a few years and it will be terrific.
