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.
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.
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.
