Delicate, feminine style with pretty aromas of raspberry, jasmine tea and dried orange peel followed by deeper scents of forest floor and chanterelle mushroom. Flavors broaden to include wild huckleberry, red cherries, toasted pecan and a hint of lavender. While delicate, the flavors are focused and persistent. The texture is plump upon entry and firms up with fine, dusty tannins providing the structure to age gracefully
Foris Vineyards Pinot Noir
Founded by Ted and Meri Gerber, Foris Winery and Vineyards is family-owned and family-managed. A graduate of Cal State Hayward in 1969, Ted studied political science and public administration. During his college years, he also developed a passion for making homemade wine. In 1971, Ted and Meri purchased hillside acreage in southern Oregon’s remote Illinois Valley with the specific intention of growing grapes. Starting from scratch, they built a house, bought the land that is now Gerber Vineyards, and began planting grapes.
