2017 / Pinot Noir

2017 Escolle Road Pinot Noir

Situated in the prestigious Santa Lucia Highlands appellation of Monterey County, this remarkable vineyard source is planted on a bench that lies approximately 300 feet above the valley floor. Enjoying an eastern exposure and the daily maritime influence of fog and brisk sea breezes from the Monterey Bay defines this as a cool climate region. The resulting long growing season, slow fruit maturation and harvesting at ideal ripeness allows Landmark to craft a wine of exceptional balance, structure and quality.

Tasting notes

The 2017 Escolle Road Pinot Noir has an attractive dark ruby/purple color in the glass, with aromas of blackberry, cherry, plum, with baking spice, savory tobacco and floral highlights. The palate is mod-erate to full-bodied with dried black cherry, blueberry with vanilla and cinnamon accents on the entry. The midpalate is complex with sustained fruit barrel spice, savory tobacco leaf and cedar accents that lead into a lingering, fresh finish of sustained black fruit and barrel spice mixed with savory elements supported by grippy tannins that will evolve over time in the cellar.


Food pairings

This is a great pairing with a flavorful but elegant meat pairing like Filet Mignon with a compound herb and garlic butter.
