This 2015 pinot (made from 51% Santa Barbara County, 26% Sonoma County, and 23% Monterey County grapes) lands on the meaty side of the street, which is unusual for Landmark’s normally fruit-centric profile. Give it some air and a healthy swirl and you’ll find that cherry and vanilla cola notes bubble up on the palate, though the beefy nose keeps things quite grounded in the end. My gut is to let this one cellar a bit. Try it in 2019.
