Fort Ross Vineyard Sea Slopes Pinot Noir 2016 Review

This wine is like a security blanket, the second it hits the palate you can feel yourself relax as the round chewy structure and juicy fruit notes of cherry and raspberry comfort your senses. There is a slight headiness, as the alcohol is right at the edge of being hot but never topples over into singe territory. Instead, it coats your palate like crushed red velvet, while still having bright acidity that punctuates with the briney location these grapes grew. This is the kind of Pinot you call friends over for, share and feel all the fuzzy feels.
