Landmark Vineyards - Overlook - Pinot Noir
Overview: Overlook Pinot Noir represent another splendid blend from some of California’s best cool climate growing regions in Monterey, Santa Barbara and Sonoma Counties. Greg Stach’s expertise in selecting the finest parcels for this blend coupled with our growers’ meticulous viticultural practices yielded truly exceptional fruit for this warmer than average vintage. Overlook Pinot Noir has an impeccable pedigree and each vineyard adds to the charm and complexity of the wine. Such dedication by our grower partners warranted hand harvesting at night with early morning deliveries to provide the purest expression of what this somewhat challenging vintage had to offer.
Tasting Notes: Medium ruby/purple color, with aromas of ripe strawberry, blackcurrant, licorice, bergamot, cedar and leather. The palate is medium to full bodied with ripe red fruit of strawberry, raspberry and black cherry fruit with balanced spice and earth mixed with leather, dusty tobacco leaf and subtle oak on the mid-palate. The moderately long finish is clean with sustained red and black fruit accented by camphor notes.
Pairing: A versatile food pairing wine that’s a great balance of ripe red fruit on the entry, savory elements on the mid-palate and a clean finish with subtle spice notes. Try it with a variety of foods from a Roasted Beet Salad with arugula, goat cheese and pecans to a Filet Mignon with a mushroom cream sauce.
