2012 Peak Chardonnay cuvée - The hazy pale light golden hue is evidence of subtle stirring of the lees and bottling without fining or filtration. Expressive aromas of green apple and apricot blossom with hints of honeysuckle and wet stone captivate the senses. Layers of bright white peach, crisp pear and zesty apricot showcase the vibrant acidity and minerality characteristic of the Fort Ross Vineyard’s coastal terroir.
2012 Highlands Pinot Noir cuvée - Enticing with its layered aromas of dark boysenberry and black cherry, this cuvée is framed with a subtle yet precise hint of spice and wild forest floor. The palate is supple, plush and texturally rich with dense and refined tannins, perfectly balanced with the bright minerality that is a signature of all wines from Fort Ross Vineyard. This wine is drinking beautifully now and will cellar for years to come.
2012 Top of Land Pinot Noir cuvée - This unique cuvée produced from the highest blocks of the Fort Ross Vineyard entices with an opaque garnet-plum hue that precedes the pure aromas of blackcurrant, plum and mulberry. The opulent aromatics lead to a complex palate defined by black raspberry, boysenberry and black cherry, with just a subtle hint of spice and forest floor. It is succulent and full-bodied, expressing refined, seamless tannins that intertwine with the Fort Ross Vineyard signature minerality which is revealed through the plush, velvety endless finish. Drinking beautifully now and will cellar for years to come.
