Americans love to drink young wines. Unlike our European counterparts, the wines we buy are consumed within 6-12 months of purchase. While there is nothing wrong with this practice, most consumers never experience the beauty of a mature wine.
At Landmark, we put way 10 cases of each wine for our library. Until recently, these wine were used for private events, special tastings and our own enjoyment. This year we decided to share our treasures with the world. Each month we will select one wine as the feature library wine of the month. During the month that particular wine will be offered at a discounted rate and will be reviewed by our winemakers.
Our first selection is the 2001 Lorenzo Chardonnay. When we first released this wine, we thought it would age 5-6 years. However, nine years later it continues to shine. Check out our Winemaker, Eric Stern and Associate Winemaker, Greg Stach, providing their insight. Visit our shop to purchase this wine.
