Product details

The 2014 FORTIS combines notable elegance with rich fruit intensity. Ripe mountain blackberry, cassis, dark plum, dark chocolate, sweet oak, coffee, and vanilla aromas lead to an expansive palate of dark cassis, espresso bean, plum, and black cherry. Pine Ridge barrel ages the wine in the winery’s caves to mature flavors and integrate plush, layered textures. This is a seamless wine with great finesse that will continue to age gracefully.
To fully appreciate the complexity of this wine, serve it with simple foods such as a juicy sirloin steak with garlic butter, or braised short ribs with herbed polenta. The ultimate pairing is a glass of 2014 FORTIS with a cheese course. It needs a hard cheese of heightened flavor and depth, such as an aged Pecorino Toscano. Robust and meaty, with hints of melted butter and lemon, a well-made Tuscan pecorino is the cheese equivalent of a grilled lamb chop. What better wine with such a savory cheese than this sumptuous tête de cuvée?
