Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of dark fruits and black tea with a hint of sage perfectly introduce the black cherry and raspberry to the palate. Symposium is Pinot Noir blended with just a bit of Pinotage, which adds subtle notes of spice and earthy bramble. Ripe cherry echoes on the palate, where layers of lush plum and stone fruits intermingle with a whisper of nutmeg and delicate vanilla.
My Notes:

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.
