Fort Ross Pinot Noir 2014
From our mountain vineyard that overlooks the Sonoma Coast in the Fort Ross-Seaview American Viticultural Area, Fort Ross Vineyard & Winery produces limited quantities of single vineyard, Estate grown, cool-climate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinotage. With spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean less than one mile away, the vineyard is divided into 32 separate blocks, one-half to two acres in size, that range in elevation from 1700 down to 1200 feet above sea level. Owners, Lester and Linda Schwartz with their small crew began preparing the 52-acre vineyard in 1994. It took them 4 years of preparation before they could begin planting. The year 2000 marked the first vintage from the Fort Ross Vineyard.
91+ Points - Wine Advocate, Robert Parker
"Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Reserve offers notes of mossy tree bark, tar, and charcoal over cranberries and raspberry leaves with a waft of roses. Elegant, light to medium-bodied, very fine and with nice ripe tannins, it finishes long with an herbal lift. Drink 2017 - 2022."
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This opens in a thick concentration of dark cherry, plum, and undeniable cola spice, the midpalate built around firm integrated tannins and oak. Complementary aspects of forest, black tea, and coastal sea spray add to the complexity and overall appeal."
