Top 100 Wine & 91pts Wine Spectator
This Overlook has it all: delicious citrus and light fruit flavors, toasty, nutty nuances, subtle spice and floral notes, all beautifully balanced with just the right amount of acidity and minerality. Pour a chilled glass and get to know it before you bring out the food. We love that it's not straight oak that's on the palate - there's some minerality and acidity too, which makes the wine so much more interesting to us. Bite-sized crab cakes with a dijon aioli are a terrific starter once you decide it's time to eat... Chicken roasted with tangerines, garlic and rosemary will pay tribute to the citrus in the wine very well. Or you could try a curried shallot sauce over grilled salmon steaks. If it's brunch or breakfast for dinner, our choice is a leek, asparagus, Gruyere quiche. Whatever you choose, you won't be disappointed. This Landmark is all that and a bag of chips.

Wine Spectator: "Well-built and rich, with a solid core of apple pastry, fig and guava flavors that offer a creamy texture. Nutmeg and clove notes show on the spicy finish. Drink now through 2022." Oct 2018

Winery: "Greg Stach’s expertise selecting the finest sites and our growers’ excellent viticultural practices yielded truly exceptional fruit from respected parcels such as the Russian River Valley, Petaluma Gap and Sonoma Carneros. The Chardonnay is hand harvested, hand sorted and fermented using all native yeasts providing the purest snapshot of what this vintage had to offer.

Pale lemon yellow, with aromas of ripe lemon, yellow apple, pineapple and toasted oak. Balanced and layered on the entry with ripe lemon, green apple and grilled ripe pineapple with attractive smoky oak and vanilla barrel notes. The crisp mid-palate shows savory chamomile flower and a pleasant mineral texture with sustained fruit that continues through the clean, textured finish.

Pair simply with yellowtail sashimi garnished with a fresh lemon wedge, or try it with a dressed-up chicken picatta, served with a pan reduction of lemon, butter, capers, and a touch of garlic."
