Our email special this week, the 2018 Foris Rogue Valley Pinot Noir, is an outrageously good wine for the price. The early vineyard pioneers of the Rogue Valley, like the Gerber family who founded Foris Winery in 1976, sought out the region's Alpine-like seasons to grow Alsatian grape varieties, such as Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Muscat. They also found that Pinot Noir acclimated well to the climate and produced elegant, well structured wines, similar to the ones found in Burgundy. The Gerbers planted their first vines between stones and boulders on the terraced slopes of the Rogue Valley’s Siskiyou Mountains. Clones of their original Pinot Noir are now found all over the vineyards of big names in the Oregon wine industry and sprinkled throughout the 135 acres of estate grown vineyards they now farm.
The 2018 Foris Rogue Valley Pinot Noir features all estate grown fruit from their Cedar Ranch and Maple Ranch vineyards. The wine displays a vibrant ruby red color that is as visually appealing as it tastes. Aromas in the glass are lifted, fresh and vibrant with red berry notes of red currants, raspberries and red plum with a floral violet note. There's a sheer elegance and balance to this wine on the palate, with a levity that helps the red berry flavors dance across the tongue and into a silky finish. Be careful. This one is so smooth it will go down so quickly, you’ll almost certainly demand another glass. Pair this one up with a wild mushroom gnocchi, braised duck with a cherry chutney or seared trout on black rice. Cheers.
