Landmark Vineyards Overlook Pinot Noir 2014
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Pinot Noir Overlook, the least expensive cuvée from Landmark, is a cross-county blend of 53% from Sonoma, 39% from Monterey and 8% from San Benito. This is a juicy, cherry-dominated, spicy, effusively fruity style of Pinot Noir that is medium-bodied and shows a touch of strawberries and spice. It is meant to be drunk in its exuberant first 3-4 years of youthfulness.
Wine EnthusiastThree appellations are called into service for this red, the majority from Sonoma and Monterey counties, with the remainder from tiny San Benito County. Together the fruit feels somewhat unformed while savory, a hodgepodge of red berry with a high-toned finish.
Wine SpectatorDirect and charmingly rustic, with enough acidity and tannins to give life to the modest berry and plum flavors. Drink now. 13,000 cases made.
