Foris Riesling Rogue Valley 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Classic Riesling on the nose with an initial touch of candle wax followed by gentle honey, baked apple, lime leaf, herb and stone aromas. Vibrant right from the get go, you get a sense of some sweetness here in the body on the tongue but this is acid driven from the first sip. Very fresh and pure in style with apple, pear with a somewhat savory and slightly salty cast to the flavors. This is absolutely zesty and nervous in the mouth. I’d love to see a little more complexity but the texture is wonderful with a hint of currant on the back end that drives onto the long clementine and mineral laced finish. 91pts
