Like Les Alliés Riesling, Forge's Classique Pinot Noir is a blend of several sites. It is a “classic” Pinot with plentiful aromas of little red fruits and a beautiful texture. It has the softness of a ripe Pinot Noir made in a cool, long ripening region. Aged in both barrels and demi-muids.

The Finger Lakes - FLX as the cool kids call it - is set to come on strong and is a wine region to watch.  With a combination of now older vines, more experienced winemakers, more investment, and even global warming to an extent, the wines from here have never been better.

Forge is a small, artisanal producer focusing entirely on Dry Riesling and Pinot Noir. Forge are 3 partners: French Winemaker-Grower, Louis Barruol of Château de Saint Cosme in Gigondas and American partners Richard Rainey, and Justin Boyette
