Nestled on a sunny coastal ridge, overlooking the Pacific Ocean a mile below, the “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. Fort Ross Vineyard has just received wonderful news — the establishment of the FORT ROSS-SEAVIEW AVA, a limited mountainous area overlooking the Pacific Ocean, north of the Russian River that was carved out of the expansive Sonoma Coast AVA. With Jeff Pisoni at the helm since 2009 this winery has gone from good to outstanding!

The 2009 is a very serious wine. The wine shows what Jeff Pisoni is all about. The wine shows structure, balance and power. On the nose one is greeted by exotic red stone fruit and hints of crushed rocks . On the palate this well-crafted wine shows its great potential of black cherries, and plums, licorice and a touch of herbs and mint. The wine is gorgeous and complex and bottled unfined and unfiltered. It tastes a lot more expensive than its price tag!
