Pinot Noir
Fort Ross Vineyard – Reserve, 2000

$ 150.00

Named after the nearby historic Russian outpost, Fort Ross, located on California’s Sonoma Coast, this vineyard continues the pioneering spirit. This is one of our most profound bottlings of this variety to date. Unfined and unfiltered, this dense and broodingly complex wine should develop well over the next decade.

Winemaker's Notes

This reserve wine is from Pinot Noir selections that have been grown in California for many decades and seem to have a more wild, unrefined side to them. This year was especially limited with only about 22 cases produced and was never really “released” until the November 2006 library offering.

    Deep ruby red color, spicy, pepper aromas with hints of black cherry and cola on nose; big, full and lush in the mouth with lovely black cherry and blackberry fruit; just the right amount of spicy, sweet oak to add complexity; good structure, long finish. There’s not much more you could want in a Pinot than what this wine offers. This is an extremely small production lot of wine, and it’s worth calling the winery to find it. 93 points. Greg Walter
