Foris Pinot Noir Rogue Valley 2009

Member Review by jasonkauf:

A whole lotta bleech. Very tinny without any pizazz. No great nose, no transition to the finish. non-distinctive in every way for me

One of the best sub-$10 pinots I've found. Generally skip pinots at this price range but this is a happy exception. Big fruit, ripe, pleasant finish.

Was very pleased with this Pinot Noir, but I haven't drank much Pinot Noir so that's not saying much. Cherry and raspberry, and a loamy forest floor thing going on with the nose. Good sense of terroir and vintage climate coming from this one. Tasting it the fruit is counterbalanced well by the subtle oak and earthy forest flavors. Big fan.

Tasted this at a company luncheon today - it was drinkable but I wouldn't say I particularly enjoyed it. Bright red color, underripe fruit flavors, lots of acidity and virtually no tannins. I would be annoyed if I paid more than $8 a bottle for this.

For the money, my favorit Pinot Noir. Sure you can have better, but who can pay $40.00+ regularly! At the 20.00 range, I can drink this once a month and not feel too guilty.

The Wall Street Journal reviewed this in October 2008 and noted, "Very good. Best Value (tie) - Classy, with tightly wound fruit and a raspberry-spice-oak-nutmeg finish. Even a touch of chocolate. Lovely" What a bargain for below $20.
