2016 Fort Ross "Sea Slopes" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1402057 92 points James Suckling

 A vibrant, red-fruited style of pinot that has a wealth of gently grippy tannins and a convincingly long palate that holds a clear, juicy finish.  (11/2018)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 This is an impressive selection from Winemaker Jeff Pisoni. A hint of forest-floor spice and strong flavors of dark cherry and orange combine on a light, silky texture. This offers a great sense of finesse within a framework of structure and freshness. *Editors' Choice* (VB)  (10/2018)

91 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2016 Pinot Noir Sea Slopes is another terrific value from this estate. Cherries, strawberries, spice, and an undeniable salty, marine-like minerality give way to a fresh, elegant, medium-bodied effort that shows the cooler, complex style of the Sonoma Coast appellation. Bravo.  (6/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Pale ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Sea Slopes gives up notions of warm cranberries and Bing cherries with a raspberry leaves, dried sage and tilled soil undercurrent. The palate is medium-bodied, refreshing and vivacious with a nice bit of chew to the texture and a persistent earthy finish. (LPB)  (4/2018)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 Tight and formal in its tart cherry flavors, this shows some reductive rubber and green-onion notes at first, then opens to a gentle, gracious Pinot Noir. Decant it for roast duck.  (10/2018)
