2004 RESERVE PINOT NOIR. Fort Ross Vineyard, Sonoma Coast - SOLD OUT
Our 2004 Reserve Pinot is a deep, opulent ruby hue and is the most substantial, intense Fort Ross Vineyard Pinot Noir to date. Generous aromas of dense wild bramble berries and currants are perfumed by hints of black tea and a touch of exotic spices. The firmly structured tannins elegantly support the concentrated tiers of ripe raspberry, black cherry and cola, and will allow this wine to age rather gracefully. The velvety, complex finish seems to linger endlessly on the palate.
92 Points - Wine Spectator
Deep and complex, with wonderful earth, clay, spice and earthy berry flavors that become more expansive on the palate, with dense, chewy currant, mineral and anise. Ends with a long finish and ample tannins. Drink now through 2012. —J.L.
