Winemaker's Notes:

Sea Slopes Pinot Noir is blended for earlier release and is ready to enjoy sooner than other Fort Ross Vineyard Pinot Noirs. The dark ruby hue alludes to the black stone fruit characteristics that follow. Forward vivid plum and vibrant wild berry aromas are elegantly balanced by hints of rose, black tea and cedar. Generout blackberry and tangy plum gracefully evolve on the palate finishine with supple tannins and the signature minerality of the Fort Ross Vineyard's coastal terroir.

About Fort Ross:

Nestled on a sunny coastal ridge, overlooking the Pacific Ocean a mile below, Fort Ross'"True Sonoma Coast" vineyard is one of the closest, if not the closest, to the ocean in all of California. From the vineyard you can see the breaking surf and the misty silhouettes of Bodega Head and Pt. Reyes far below. The vineyard's high elevation above the coastal fog and its proximity to the ocean provide a gentle, sunny and temperate climate that has proved to be very favorable for the slow and even ripening of Burgundian varietals.
