Tasting Notes:
tasted: August 26, 2005 , Catherine Granger ManageYourCellar.com
3.5 stars "Purple color, peppery nose. On the palate, medium-bodied with a spicy finish. A good value."
rated: August 12, 2005 , K&L Wine Merchants klwines.com
"The Forots consists of 100% Syrah from 60 year old vines. Grapes are picked manually; the bunches are de-stemmed and lightly crushed before being fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged for nine months, 25% in one or two-year-old oak barrels prior to bottling. Wonderful aromas of violets, spice and licorice lead to a palate loaded with ripe berry fruit. The mouth-feel is soft and elegant in spite of the rich fruit flavors. This is a great choice with Moroccan lamb with Couscous. Drink now and over the next 3 -5 years. " Best 2005-2008
