An incredible, profound Pinot Noir, Foxen’s 2013 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard Block 8 was completely destemmed and aged 17 months in 50% new French oak. Its deep ruby color is followed by sensational notes of sweet cherries, black raspberries, crushed flowers and a touch of licorice. Medium to full-bodied, layered and multi-dimensional, with seamless texture, this is California Pinot Noir at its finest. Drink it any time over the coming 7-8 years.

Winemaker’s Notes

2012 Foxen Syrah Williamson-Dore Vineyard, Santa Ynez Valley
On Sale $43.99
The 2013 Syrah Williamson-Doré Vineyard is shaping up to be a real beauty. Deep, powerful and structured, the 2013 possesses superb depth, with plenty of dark, varietal Syrah fruit and enough intensity to drink well for many years. Next to the sturdier Tinaquaic Syrah, the Williamson-Doré is a bit richer and sweeter through the middle. Both wines are superb and full of potential. The 2013 is 100% Syrah.
93 Points, Vinous Media
