2010 Fort Ross Fort Ross Vineyard Sea Slopes Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $36. 100% de-stemmed. Aged 10 months in 24% new and 76% neutral French oak barrels. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Upfront aromas of plum and wild berry fruits, sandalwood, spice, and moss. Tasty core of dark red stone fruits and berries with an underlying savory herb and dried flower note, wrapped in muscular, sinewy tannins. Lightest in concentration of the three Fort Ross 2009 Pinot Noirs tasted here but with an appealing dry, black cherry-driven finish. Good. Reviewed April 13, 2013
