2012 Highlands Pinot Noir
The Highlands cuvée is sourced from Pinot Noir vines that were the earliest vines planted by us in the gently rolling hills of the central highland portion of our vineyard. 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.
