Scherrer "Fort Ross High Slopes" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

"2002: This is what Pinot Noir on the Sonoma Coast is about. It has more structure and focus than the more open and generous Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs that we released last August. Sassafras and red fruits come out of the glass hours after being poured, indicating a long life ahead. This wine is the graceful, balanced, yet perfectly conditioned gymnast. There will be another bottling released next year called 'High Slopes' which is the most dense, nearly impenetrable part of the vineyard. 280 cases produced. $38 per 750 mL, $20 per 375 mL. Limit 12."" """

Nestled on a sunny coastal ridge, overlooking the Pacific Ocean a mile below, our “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.
