Pinot Noir
Fort Ross Vineyard – ‘High Slopes’, 2002

$ 300.00

Some of the vineyard parcels here are west-facing, steep and quite dry. They produce concentrated wines with great depth. This wine is an assemblage of the most harmonious barrels from these parcels. Unfined and unfiltered, this dense and complex wine should develop well over the next decade.

Winemaker's Notes

From the leanest soils, and some of the highest elevations of this coastal vineyard, the vines here struggle to become established. The berries are tiny, delivering a tightly structured wine that seemed to call for a high proportion of new barrels. Unlike the more open 2002 Russian River Valley bottlings you may have seen at the last open houses, this powerful wine demands consumption with food and should reward time in the bottle.
