Review: 2019 Landmark Vineyards Pinot Noir – Overlook and Grand Detour

Review: 2019 Landmark Vineyards Pinot Noir – Overlook and Grand Detour

Two new pinot noirs from Landmark — one from Paso Robles, one from the Sonoma Coast — both from the 2019 vintage. Ready or not:

2019 Landmark Vineyards Overlook Pinot Noir – Classic Paso Robles pinot, rich with notes of macerated cherries, fresh currants, and an herbal quality that sprinkles in notes of rosemary and thyme as the wine develops on the palate. Light notes of dark chocolate and toffee give the finish a slightly sweet bent. Great balance throughout. A- / $27

2019 Landmark Vineyards Grand Detour Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast – Fairly doughy and savory at first, this is a wine that needs air and time to show its real potential. It can be slow going, but patience rewards the drinker with a rich, voluptuous experience, dripping with expressive sour cherries, dark chocolate, and a touch of vanilla. The balance of Overlook is lacking on this more aggressive and pushy experience, but for some drinkers, that may resonate. B+ / $35
