Deep garnet in hue with gorgeous aromas of wild black raspberry, cherry, smoke, and gravelly minerality. Rich and juicy, with excellent purity and finesse, gaining layers of complexity after time in the glass. Finishing with great tension and nerve, to enjoy now through to 2025.
Review to be released in October 2017 Buying Guide.
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. 2016-2026.
