Wine of the week: Lynmar, 2018 Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, Quail Hill Vineyard, Sonoma County

Pete Soergel is a grape tactician. Dialing in the details, from blending decisions to cooperage choices, is his forte. The winemaker of Healdsburg’s Lynmar Estate painstakingly crafted our wine of the week winner — the Lynmar, 2018 Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, Quail Hill Vineyard, Sonoma County, 14.4%, $63. It’s a gorgeous chardonnay that has complexity and a silky texture. Blousy yet balanced, it’s buoyed by bright acidity. With layered notes of pineapple and melon and a kiss of caramel, it’s impressive.
