Pinot noir on its way to superstar status
“If you asked me my favorite wine, I couldn’t tell you. I value variety too much. If you put a gun to my head, I might stammer out the words “pinot noir.”
2010 Landmark Grand Detour Pinot Noir – Sonoma Coast: aromas of oak and earth, flavors of red raspberries and spice”

A Milestone at Landmark Vineyards: a 40-Year Retrospective For A Sonoma Valley Classic
“Known for its signature style of Chardonnay and single-vineyard Pinot Noir, Landmark Vineyards has many reasons to celebrate as it enters its 40th year. To mark the occasion, winemaker Greg Stach has released a new Pinot for the winery’s highly-regarded Overlook label.”
“Father’s Day is coming up, and if you have a Dad who is as thirsty as we are here at Honest Cooking – he will surely appreciate receiving a good bottle of wine or two on his special day. We have taken it upon ourselves to browse through hundreds of wines (yes, it is a tough job), to get down to a list of 16 great, powerful and manly wines worth spending a little extra on that will definitely be Father’s Day gift hits. These wines are all big, bold and decadent – and can take a few years of storing if Dad doesn’t want to share right away.
Landmark Overlook Pinot Noir 2012 $25.99
From the heart of Sonoma comes this Pinot Noir blend. Ruby colored and with a lovely bouquet this is a wonderful food wine. Goes equally well with a light chicken dish, a heartier pasta dish or grilled vegetables.”
The Press Democrat
“Landmark Vineyards, 2012 Overlook Pinot Noir, 14.5 percent, $25. This is a complex pinot noir with bright acid. It has a great range of fruit – black cherry, plum and strawberry – with a seamless texture. The breakdown is: 53 percent San Luis Obispo, 40 percent Sonoma and 7 percent Monterey counties. If this vintage isn’t on the wine list quite yet, simply pick the 2011.“

LANDMARK VINEYARDS “OVERLOOK” PINOT NOIR
“Tasting notes: Ripe plum & wild strawberry aromas lead into a supple, well-focused wine with gorgeous depth and expressive fruit. Dry, balanced acidity with silky tannins and notes of dark red fruit and spices. This wine is ready to drink now, but would also benefit from 2-3 years in the cellar.”
The Tampa Tribune
“Landmark 2011 Overlook Chardonnay. Great summer wine with peach, nectarine and Meyer lemon notes. This is the label for Landmark Vineyards’ 2011 Overlook Chardonnay, produced in Sonoma County, Calif.”
Backyard Bocce Court
“Kick back with a friendly game of bocce in the backyard. Sandy Brewer and her husband, David, a landscape contractor, design bocce courts like this one at Landmark Vineyards in Kenwood, California.”
“It’s not officially summer until June 21, but wineries go into summertime mode in May, opening their patios, holding special events and firing up the grill. Virginie Boone recommends these wineries for May-June; they’re open to the public, typically from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Contact individual tasting rooms to confirm.
