Winery Tasting Notes: “Ruby in hue, this elegant, medium-bodied Pinot Noir entices with aromas of raspberry and orange pekoe tea, framed by touches of earthy mushroom, cola and a wisp of roses.  The alluring aromatics lead to an integrated palate defined by layers of bing cherry, bramble berries with a dash of bright cranberry, and citrus. Fine, evolved, tannins and the Fort Ross Vineyard signature minerality are revealed through the smooth, mature, lingering finish. This Reserve Pinot Noir, comprised of our best 5 barrels of the vintage, will age gracefully for 7-10 years and beyond.”
