A few years ago we were pleasantly surprised to receive a magnum of this wine. The Lynmar 2013 Quail Hill Vineyard pinot noir magnum was a special gift to long-time members of their Advocates club. We have extolled the virtues of wine clubs in the past, but Lynn and Anisya Fritz regularly exceed our very high expectations. (We recently received another magnum of the 2018. We will try to be patient.) We cracked open this bottle for our recent anniversary.
The wine might develop over the next few years, but it is delicious today. Aromas of dark chocolate and forest floor. The palate is black cherries with more dark chocolate and damp bark. The finish is amazing. Tannins are fully integrated and linger on the tongue.

While there may be a few bottles of this stashed in the Lynmar library, you can’t buy this through the winery website. The moral is clear. When you find a winery you like, join their wine club on the spot.
