Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.9%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Our 2009 Pinot Noir is a bit more forward than prior vintages, leaning more to the black-fruit vs. red fruit side on both the nose and palate. The palate retains a fresh and focused acidity that complements the fine and subtle tannins. As of fall 2011, the pure primary fruit is starting to show more complexity with each month in bottle. Hints of clove and earth are coming into focus and the texture is open and inviting already.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep red. Dark berries and cherry on the powerful, fruit-driven nose and in the mouth. Juicy and expansive, with very good clarity and breadth and appealing sweetness. Notes of boysenberry and cherry liqueur linger on the long, spice-accented finish. No shortage of fruit here; this is easily the best basic bottling from Foris I've ever had."
90 Points

"Warm and plummy, with a savor note of leather and tobacco leaf, this wine's flavors lean more to black cherry and a hint of pine. A richly textured pinot for roast pork."
90 Points
