2012 Fort Ross Vineyard & Winery Fort Ross VineyardPinot Noir Sonoma Coast Fort Ross-Seaview

(0) No Reviews yet


If you crave the essence of the Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir - briary fresh and dried wild strawberries, griottes cherries, fallen leaves, and spicy scents, this will drive you wild. It drinks like Le Chambertin or Richebourg. Think we're full of the proverbial cold cut? Try a bottle.

Parker will back us up: The 2012 Pinot Noir Fort Ross Vineyard has notes of black raspberries, kirsch, baking spices, subtle earth and a hint of gravel-like minerality. The wine has terrific fruit on the attack and mid-palate, medium to full body, and a long finish. This is a beauty to drink over the next decade." "

Details

Sonoma Coast doesn't get any more coastal than Fort Ross. Their vineyard perch above Highway 1 is only a mile from the water. They're one of the founding members of the new "Fort Ross-Seaview" appellation which recognizes the unique influence of the Pacfic on (mostly) Burgundian varietals. It's what has been referred to for many years as the "true" Sonoma Coast; the district officially streches so far inland as to make the maritime influence basically irrelevant. From the cliffs above the fog layer, the fortunate vines of Fort Ross are able to bask in brilliant sunshine by day and be rocked to sleep at night by soothing ocean breezes. Happy grapes make for some awfully tasty wine, as you'll discover here.
