Landmark Damaris Chardonnay
Beautifully balanced with nice pear,apricot, and honeysuckle, this white is exquisite.Subtle flavors of smoky oak and a classic nose make this wine irrresistable.
I was so surprised to taste this delicious wine. It is certainly among the very best of Chardonnay wines.
Hard to find wine.....
Damaris Chardonnay is very hard to fine in conventional wine stores. It is a consistently high quality and complex wine. The price at which it was offerred was particularly attractive.
Just opened my first bottle...
Was looking for an excuse to finally get to this bottle and some grilled scallops called it's name. This is a super rich, no holds bar, Cali Chard... but it still manages to retain it's acidity. Perfect on the patio for a great Spring meal. And the "showing it's age" comment by someone, absolutely crazy. It's a youngster.
As close as CA going to get
Awesome! To a person, our group was positive that this wine was a premier cru white burgundy. Tanzer's "old school Chassagne" was dead on.
"showing it's age" ???
I don't think so...
elegant, focused wine
well-balanced, elegant and easy to drink. nice toasty / yeasty character - rich mouth feel...
No, but give this wine some cellar time if you can. Drinks great now and blossoms with some air time.
very nice - classic CA cab
Old-school and oaky. Very much enjoyed it.
Almost their best!
A great chardonnay, but Landmark's Overlook Chardonnay is a better buy. Cheaper and better.
Reminded me a bit of the great Burgundian style Chard's produced by Rick Forman in the 90's but with a tad more oak. A really nice balanced Chard at a decent price.
2007 Landmark Vineyards Chardonnay Damaris Reserve Sonoma County
Crisp, refreshing notes of pear & apple. Light and elegant... another great vintage from Landmark
Delicious fruit and floral aroma; very pleased.
Landmark Damaris 07
Nice toasty pineapple and melon..med oak slight spice
This wine is everything it was supposed to be. A Motrachet from Calif. A great wine.
a poignant treat
Six bottles arrived the day before my father-in-law died who has lived in our home for his last five years. Within that weekend of family arriving from everywhere, serious choices and decisions, raucous stories and memories and a million tears this wine became a element of satisfaction at meals, in quiet conversations on the back porch and in moments of private, personal reflection. Everyone commented on the taste, flavors, perfect addition, etc. We received it as a family as a sign of God's grace at this particular crossing. One bottle was sent off that weekend as a housewarming gift to a child of the family and the last is saved. It carries a high mark for us.
Not enough bang for the buck.
Landmark's Damaris Reserve was a nice, fruit forward chard. However, I have tasted many that compared favorably at about $10 less, even at the discounted price offered.
Only ONE bottle of the....4 or 6 that I ordered even came close to your review. The rest ho hum and so so. And, recently talking to one of my local wine merchants, he told me that he has read reviews that some wines are inconsistent....I would say that his applies to your maker. So, and looking for vin-vat-etc. and whatever numbers on the bottles, they were not there. But the fact remains, the wine did so not live up to your reviews.
Nice wine. Flavors of smokey pear, honey, some citrus and nice minerality. Long finish. Good value wine.
Good, but showing its age.
