2018 Landmark Pinot Gris

Representing our 5th vintage for this program, the 2018 Pinot Gris was sourced entirely from our Hop Kiln Vineyard on Westside Road. Having complete control in the farming practices at this Estate vineyard in the heart of the Russian River Valley gives us a consistent source of grapes and the opportunity to improve the quality of the fruit. Block 15 is characterized by gravelly, well-drained soils and is located on a bench (a rise in topography) approximately 60 feet in elevation above the Russian River. Benefitting from Clone 152’s characteristic slow ripening habit, our patience waiting for the desired ripeness and maturity provides you with a wine with great aromatics and texture.

Tasting notes

Pale straw/lemon color, the 2018 Landmark Pinot Gris is aromatically complex with hi tone white peach, ripe golden delicious apple, melon, tropical fruit and white flower notes. On the palate, it’s moderate to full bodied, clean and dry with complex fruit. Ripe lemon, green and yellow apple with tropical notes on the entry. Yellow peach and apple blossom with subtle beeswax notes emerge on the mid palate. The finish is lengthy with sustained fruit and floral notes joined with pleasant savory mineral elements and textures as the finish evolves.


Food pairings

Aromatically complex and textured, the 2018 Pinot Gris pairs nicely with a Linguine Frutti di Mare made with shrimp, clams, mussels and calamari or with a cheese and charcuterie assortment of Alpine cheeses like Emmental, Gruyere or Comte served with bresaola, speck or prosciutto.
