90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012

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.

We have consumed half of the case and five bottles were very good but one was off and not drinkable.

Pinot Noir

Adored by critics, prized by collectors, Pinot Noir is one of most tantalizing yet temperamental varietals in the world. For many wine enthusiasts, this is part of the appeal of Pinot -- it doesn't reveal its charms easily. Pinot Noir's virtue also stems from the unique characteristics of the grape. The skins are especially delicate, which accounts for the lighter color and body of finished wine. But, despite the delicacy, the best wines have excellent backbone and...
