2018 / Pinot Noir

2018 Escolle Road Pinot Noir

Situated in the prestigious Santa Lucia Highlands appellation of Monterey County, this remarkable vineyard source is planted on a bench that lies approximately 300 feet above the valley floor. Enjoying an eastern exposure and the daily maritime influence of fog and brisk sea breezes from the Monterey Bay defines this as a cool climate region. The resulting long growing season, slow fruit maturation and harvesting at ideal ripeness allows Landmark to craft a wine of exceptional balance, structure and quality.

Tasting notes

Medium ruby hue, with deep aromas of dark plum, boysenberry, and blackberry. The palate is full and fruit-driven, with mixed red berry and red plum fruit dominating. The mid-palate features muted cherry fruit with hints of camphor and baking spice with a long finish, featuring smoky barrel spice, medium tannins and a pleasant lingering mouth-filling texture on the finish.


Food pairings

Pairs well with rich, flavorful dishes likeslow cooked lamb shanks or a pork roast with a blackberry compote glaze.
