2016 Chardonnay FRV

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
From a field selection planted to old Hyde and Wente clones, this white has soft rounded corners of caramel oak and vanilla bean. The complex, balanced richness is defined in tropical fruit accented by a brightness of tangerine and white peach. — Virginie Boone

2014 FRV Pinot Noir

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Tangy red cherry, rose petal, and spicy cola combine on the palate around softened, silky tannins. Though smooth in feel, the palate still offers plenty of defined structure and elegant acidity.  — Virginie Boone

2013 Stagecoach Road Pinot Noir

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
A brooding texture and fully layered concentration of intense flavor spark the palate & mind in this estate wine, which is showy in cola, bark, black cherry, and black tea. Medium bodied and well made, it finds a balance between its coastal influence, its crisp acidity & the burlier aspects of fruit and weight. — V.B.

2016 "FRV" Chardonnay

91 Points - Wine Advocate, Robert Parker
The 2016 Chardonnay Fort Ross Vineyard gives up notions of warm applesauce, poached pears and honey toast with a waft of lemon peel. The palate is medium-bodied with appealing freshness and plenty of spicy stone fruit and apple flavors, finishing on a honey-nut note. 508 cases produced. –Lisa Perrotti-Brown

2015 Stagecoach Road Pinot Noir

93 Points - Wine Advocate, Robert Parker
Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Stagecoach Road  Pinot Noir opens with fragrant notes of violets and rose hips with a core of red and black cherries, stewed rhubarb and underbrush plus a waft of wild thyme. Medium bodied with great intensity and a firm backbone of finely grained tannins and wonderful freshness, it finishes on a compelling minerally note. 121 cases were made. –Lisa Perrotti-Brown

2014 The Terraces Pinot Noir

94 Points - Wine Advocate, Robert Parker
The flagship Pinots at Fort Ross are clearly worth the trade-up. The 2014 Pinot Noir The Terraces reveals a pale to medium ruby-purple color with complex, earthy, herbal and mineral/crushed stones notes over black raspberries, pomegranate, lavender and violets. Light to medium-bodied, the palate is very fine, firm and multilayered, with a seamless backbone and great length. Only 132 cases were made. Drink Date: 2017 - 2025

2017 "FRV" Chardonnay

94 Points - Wine Spectator 
Powerful and rich, with intense, juicy flavors of apple and butter, flanked by butterscotch notes. Savory accents linger on the intensely spicy finish, layered with creamy hints. Drink now through 2025.

2016 "FRV" Pinot Noir

93 Points - Wine Spectator
Finely textured and concentrated flavors of raspberry, plum and red currant are vibrant and well-focused in this svelte and direct style. Mineral and spice notes linger on the fresh, crunchy finish, with peppery hints. Drink now through 2023.
