About the Wine

The 2022 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir bottling represents our tenth vintage working hand in hand with our grower partners and is once again defined by their commitment to achieving the highest-quality fruit from vintage to vintage. A long growing season, slow fruit maturation, and night hand-harvesting at ideal ripeness allow Landmark to craft a wine of exceptional balance, structure, quality, and longevity.

Pan-Seared Duck Breast
