Red Car Fort Ross Estate Pinot Noir 2012

This Pinot comes from the same neighborhood as such elite wines as Marcassin and Hirsch. A bouquet packed with black fruit and violets leaps from the glass. The texture is ultra-polished and maintains exquisite balance from start to finish. Complex layers of focused raspberry, strawberry and cedar spice culminate in a bright, persistent and fruit-driven finish. Wonderfully approachable now, it will continue to drink beautifully for another 4-5 years.
