K&L Notes

Winemaker's notes: "Our most fruit forward Pinot Noir, the Pinot for this bottling comes most prominently from our five-acre Pommard Clone section of our Block 8 at Bien Nacido. In addition, we also blended into it a bit more from some of our other favorite blocks at Bien Nacido, Riverbench and Solomon Hills Vineyards. This wine was bottled after ten months in second-year French barrels to preserve its bright red, summer fruit flavors and spice components."

    Foxen’s 2015 Pinot Noir shows up big with red fruit: bright strawberry on the nose tempered by baking spice through the palate with subtle minerality and a long, slightly earthy finish. This is rich California red Pinot to be certain, but with blue floral aromatics, Santa Maria’s cooler climate, and Foxen’s light touch, this is a nuanced version. Plus the winery is always worth a visit!

    Foxen remains one of my favorite producers from SB County. Every sip of this juicy Pino will keep you wanting more. I get notes of strawberry compote, cherry cola and cinnamon. By no means is this high abv fruit bomb that you might expect from California Pinos. It has some earthy undertones and retains good acidity. This is a great value for fruit coming from Bien Nacido and Solomon Hills vineyards. Ready to drink now.
