2018 / Pinot Noir

2018 Grand Detour Pinot Noir

The 2018 Grand Detour Pinot Noir was sourced from Landmark’s historic Hop Kiln Estate on Westside Road. Crafting this wine from Estate fruit gives winemaker, Greg Stach, opportunities to select his favorite blocks with unique grape and rootstock combinations. Working closely with Estate Vineyard Manager, David Smith, we were able to harvest the fruit at optimum timing while employing our best practices in the vineyard. Delivering the hand-harvested and field sorted grapes to the winery in the early morning hours retains the integrity and desired characteristics of the fruit. The 2018 growing season at Hop Kiln was without the intense heat event experienced in 2017 therefore producing grapes of great sugar to acid balance, leading to a rich and balanced wine for your enjoyment.

Tasting notes

Medium ruby in color featuring complex aromas of red cherry and ripe strawberry fruit with cola, leather and subtle roasted coffee notes. The palate is bold and rich with flavors of red cherry, ripe strawberry, an accent of earthy rhubarb with cola and black licorice spice showing fine, velvety tannins on the mid-palate and through a long finish of sustained fruit, cedar, smoke and dried herbs.


Food pairings

The 2018 Grand Detour Pinot Noir has the balanced intensity for which Sonoma Coast Pinot Noirs are well known and is a great pairing with BBQ pulled pork or a classic Beef Bourguignon.
