Winemaker's Background: Foris Vineyards, nestled in the heart of Oregon's Rogue Valley, has been dedicated to producing exceptional wines from their estate-grown fruit for decades. The 2021 vintage posed unique challenges with fluctuating weather conditions, but the skilled team at Foris managed to craft a Pinot Noir that speaks to the tenacity and adaptability of their vines. The hand-harvested fruit underwent meticulous de-stemming and whole berry fermentation in small open-top bins, followed by gentle punch-downs and a 10 to 14 day fermentation process. The wine was then aged for 10 months in French oak barrels, with 15% being once-filled, enhancing its complexity and structure.

Serving Suggestions: The 2021 Foris 'Estate Grown' Pinot Noir is best enjoyed at around 60-65°F (15-18°C) to fully appreciate its nuanced flavors. It pairs beautifully with a variety of dishes, such as roasted duck, grilled salmon, or a mushroom risotto. For a cheese pairing, consider aged Gouda or Brie. This Pinot Noir's balanced acidity and rich palate also make it a delightful companion for a cozy evening, savored slowly to enjoy its evolving character.
