Fulcrum Wines

The real impetus for Fulcrum Wines is to produce California Pinot Noirs that are in balance for critical consumers that believe as we do, that more is not always better. Acid, tannin, sweetness, alcohol, fruit expression, oak influence, age worthiness, and food friendliness are all key areas where we seek to strike the right balance. A fulcrum is a point of balance for a lever. Leveraging the best wines out of the best grapes while maintaining a wines balance is a great metaphor for what Fulcrum is all about. – Description from Pinot Dude

  • Boutique wineries are the fulcrum of the Israeli wine industry and their winemakers are ready to bring the country's wines to the international stage. This past week The Daily Mail published an Agence France-Presse (AFP) story about Israel's tight network of boutique wineries, emphasizing the role the small operations play in the overall big ope...

  • Fulcrum On Point Christinna's Cuvee Pinot Noir 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The wine showed predominantly dark berries, plum soft oak and spice, also with a little mocha, toast and cola. Smooth tannins. The fruit gets a little redder towards the long and elegant finish. Not big and fake in the same way that some Pinots can be, especially when encountered around this same price point. Read More

  • Fulcrum Gap's Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Surprisingly subtle on the nose, maybe even warrants decanting. Either that or another year or two in the bottle. Once its been allowed to open up, youll be greeted with baked cherry and rhubarb pie, as well as ripe raspberry and spice and clove. Darker fruit on the palate, giving way to plum and ripe-dark blackberry. The spice continues with so... Read More

  • Fulcrum Wines Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Candied, dark and wild with musky, animale undertones. Sweet wood and dry mushroom spice, candied fruit, big and fairly rich with some noticeable wood tannins presenting quite firmly under the transparent red fruit. Nice interplay of wood and spice, though a bit two-dimensional. 88pts Read More

  • On Point Pinot Noir Fulcrum Wines Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir Red 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This is intense, lightly leathery, funky and earthy with cola, quinine, vanilla and lightly beefy notes to the red berry fruit aromas. A bit soft up front then zesty with super fine tannins and mouth-watering acidity supporting wild cherry fruits that have a distinctly earthy, leathery edge to them. This is well-balanced and quite complex if a b... Read More

  • Fulcrum Tina Marie Vineyard Russian River Pinot Noir 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Lovely on the nose, with some youthful oak backing up really perfumed fruit. This has wonderfully fresh floral tones, a light herbal top note with a hint of green tea and spicy red currant/cranberry fruit. This enters the mouth with a really light character and gains only a modest amount of weight through the mid-palate. The fruit is bright and ... Read More
