Winemaker Notes

The 2005 Reserve Pinot is a deep, opulent ruby hue that is nearly opaque. This generous wine is truly the most substantial, intensely concentrated Fort Ross Vineyard Pinot Noir to date. Vivid, complex aromas of dense dark bramble berry and violets are perfumed by hints of black tea and a touch of exotic spices. The firmly structured tannins elegantly support the tiers of ripe black plums, black cherry and cola and will allow this wine to age gracefully. The velvety, complex finish lingers on the palate.

Wine Spectator
Spicy cola, raspberry, cranberry and savory herb and dried cherry fruit give this an intriguing range of complex flavors. Balanced, elegant and structured. Better than previously reviewed.
CG 90
Connoisseurs' Guide
If cast in the same, slightly restrained model as its sibling below, the Fort Ross Reserve musters just a little more richness and depth. It firms up at the finish and picks up a scant edge of astringency after its supple beginnings, but its precise, well-defined fruit sustains nicely...

Fort Ross Vineyard, Sonoma County, California
2005 Reserve Pinot Noir
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.
