2015 Apriori Pinot Noir - Fort Ross Vineyard - Fort Ross Seaview - Sonoma County
Enticing aromas of raspberry, cherry and wild flowers are elegantly intertwined with a hint of dried pine needles. Flavors of strawberry, cranberry and subtle notes of mandarin orange and forest floor lightly coat the mouth, along with fine oak tannin and fresh acidity.
The hand harvested grapes were de-stemmed, manually sorted and transferred to stainless steel tanks for a 5 day cold soak and a soft ferment over three weeks. Aged on its lees in 30% new french oak barrels for 9 months before bottling.
