Winemaker's Notes:

Compared with previous vintages the consistency of forward fruit depth and soft, restrained tannins continues a style that the vineyards present to us. Pronounced cherry, rose petal and spicy flavors in a silky soft body come from our older (20 years) vineyards which are planted to a high percentage of Wadensvil close and a low percentage of Pommard. These wines offer strong and pure cassis, earthy notes and richer, more velvety body. The delicacy of our Pinot is also due to gentle winemakeing regime of whole berry fermentation, punchdown and no pumping of fermented must.
My Notes:

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.
