Winemaker's Notes:

The wine shows fresh apple and quince notes on both the nose and palate. A hint of baking spices ads complexity while a seam of minerality leads to a long clean finish. This wine is drinking well on its release in the fall of 2011, however we find our Pinot Gris tends peak around eighteen months after the vintage and develop for several years.

About Foris Vineyards Winery:

Foris is located in the coastal Siskiyou Mountains just six miles from the Oregon/California border. The diverse Rogue River Valley appellation comprises three distinct valleys with progressively warmer microclimates. Foris produces a Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from its Klipsun Vineyard overlooking the Yakima River in Washington State.
