ERIC ROSS Wines

The driving motivation of the Eric Ross style is showcasing the unique qualities of specific vineyards and their geo-graphic locations.

We work with vineyards from Russian River, Dry Creek, Lodi and The Carneros, crafting unique varietals of Albarino, Viognier, Pinot Noir, Grenache, Tempranillo, Old Vine Zinfandel and Cabernet from the Mayacamas Mountains as well as PORT.

Pretty simple concept. The execution, now that’s the tough part!  It starts with respect for your subject, whether it’s from behind the lens or walking through the vineyard.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF ERIC ROSS

Walking through the doors of Eric Ross you immediately realize a new “old school” tasting room experience is about to unfold.  Not only are the wines superbly crafted but the tasting room experience is unrushed, thoughtful and not a single number machine to be found!

You’ll be in great hands with Dennis & Diane, Tasting Room Managers.

QUALITY WINE CANNOT BE ARTIFICIALLY CREATED

“The long, cool growing season, just above the fog line, keeps the vines temperate, yet there’s plenty of sun to ripen,” Eric explains. “The cool-down at night prevents acids in the skins from dissipating resulting in wines of great flavor and structure.”

RESPECTING THE TERROIR

“A winemakers place is not to interfere with the process it should be respecting the individual varietals with copious amounts of personal attention. “A beautiful Russian River Pinot needs to taste like Pinot with it’s subtle unique nuances, not like a Syrah.”

A FOODIE AT HEART...

Eric likens the wines to a beautiful meal: “If you start out with really good fresh ingredients, I mean really good, you have the fundamental components for something extraordinary.”

Terroir is a French term that literally translated means: earth, or soil.

However, there is no such thing as a literal translation of anything French. In a larger context, wine tasters try to define terroir as the specificity of place, which has come to include not only the soil in a region, but also the climate, the weather, the aspect of the vineyards and anything else that can possibly differentiate one piece of land from another.

Reserve wine is wine of a higher quality than usual, or a wine that has been aged before being sold, or both. Traditionally winemakers would “reserve” some of their best wine rather than sell it immediately, coining the term.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reserve_wine

An estate-bottled wine is made entirely from grapes owned by the winery, and the wine is made entirely on the winery’s property—it doesn’t ever leave the property during fermentation, aging, or bottling.
