An absolutely profound Pinot Noir is their 2010 Pinot Noir Reserve Fort Ross Vineyard, with 48% new oak, aged in French barrels for ten months, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. This also has the same alcoholic potency, 14.5%, as its sibling. However, that’s about the only thing it shares in common. This is just spectacular Pinot Noir, with a DRC-like forest floor, black raspberry and blackberry nose, a deep ruby color and fabulous texture. Beet root and Asian spice give additional complexity to this generously endowed, fleshy, yet exceptionally complex and elegant Pinot Noir. This wine, along with the Chardonnay, gives me high hopes that they’ve got a special site on the Sonoma Coast and are on their way to much greater attention and acclaim. (RP)
Dark purple in color, this is a fully realized Pinot Noir, aged longer in bottle before release, to great effect. Spicy and earthy, it offers a density that’s not overwhelming but gives the wine an ideal combination of style and substance, complex in cherry and vanilla.
Sweet oak is a prominent player in the ripe and relatively outgoing aromas and flavors of this generously fruited offering, and, while it wants for nothing in the way of richness and size, the wine seems to have been made with cellaring in mind and is still slightly astringent and sufficiently tannic as to call for a few more years of age. We can see it working with simple steaks and chops now, but we believe that it has more to offer and are in no hurry to drink it down. One puff.
