2014 Sea Slopes Pinot Noir
Our Sea Slopes Pinot Noir is harmoniously blended with a delicate hand for earlier release than our other Fort Ross Vineyard Pinot Noirs. This expressive garnet hued Pinot Noir entices with cranberry and Bing cherry aromas that are balanced by notes of dried orange peel and baking spices.
90 Points - Wine Advocate
The 2014 Pinot Noir Sea Slopes gets its name from overlooking the Pacific Ocean at an elevation of 1,200 to 1,700 feet. The wine spent nine months in 10% new French oak prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered. This wine offers loads of Chinese black tea, pomegranate, floral notes and a hint of raspberry in a medium-bodied, fresh, lively, Côte de Beaune style. Drink it over the next 5-7 years (2016 - 2023).
