Foursight Pinot Named Top 100 Wine!

Our Foursight 2006 Charles Vineyard Pinot was named a Top 100 Wine of 2008 by the San Francisco Chronicle!!!

This ran in last Friday's edition of the paper:
"Great winemakers seem to give all the credit to their vineyards. But as we closed in on the Top 100 Wines for 2008, the winemaker's craft never seemed more important. ...

"2006 Foursight Wines Charles Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir ($46) Kristy Charles moved back to Boonville after a successful wine-industry career in part to run a vineyard with her family and fiance. This inaugural effort is earthy and focused, in the traditional Anderson Valley style, with a mix of Bing cherry, blueberry and rhubarb. It's an auspicious debut, with plenty of delicate red fruit and a savory, smoky, nori-like nuance." - Jon Bonné

We were alongside some Kosta Browne, Macphail, Siduri and Domaine Drouhin in the Pinot Noir category - it always makes us happy to be in such good company! We're very excited.
