K&L Notes

The team behind Foxen has found a recipe for success: take top-notch fruit from great vineyards, don't mess with it, and then sell it at an affordable price. Antonio Galloni praised the producer and their 2014 vintage: "Proprietors Bill Wathen and Dick Doré are at the top of their game... The Pinot Noirs are made with fully destemmed fruit and spend around 17 months in French oak barrels, usually less than 50% new, with the exception of the appellation wines, which are bottled after about nine months in neutral oak... All of the wines see minimal handling and are bottled with no fining or filtration... These are some of the most expressive, singular wines being made in Santa Barbara County today." (06/2015)

    The 2014 sings with red fruit - bright strawberry on the nose tempered by baking spice through the palate with balanced acid and a subtly earthy finish. This is rich California Pinot to be sure, but Foxen’s deft winemaking and Santa Maria’s cooler climate make for a more nuanced version. Plus the winery is always worth a visit!
