“I was blown away by these new Pinot Noir releases from Foxen.”
Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
Our California expert, Clare, really scored with this stunning Pinot Noir exclusive, from one of California’s (if not the world’s) finest Pinot Noir producers.
Foxen Vineyard is a true boutique. They make just 18,000 cases per year, across some 28 different cuvées. Founded in 1985 by dynamic duo Dick Doré and Bill Wathen, it’s ranked as one of the region’s ‘Elite’ Pinot Noir specialists by Wine Enthusiast – and top critic Antonio Galloni says they’re making “some of the most expressive, singular wines in Santa Barbara County today.”
Hailing from top-sited vineyards in the premium Sta. Rita Hills, aka “the Vosne-Romanée of California” (Decanter),Foxen Cellar Select showcases the exceptional 2014 vintage and boasts two 91-point ratings from Wine Enthusiast and The Wine Advocate, who raved:
“Black cherries, toasted spice, licorice and wild herbs all emerge from this balanced, gorgeously textured 2014 Pinot Noir … it’s a smoking value that has both fruit and complexity.”
Aged in fine French barrels for 17 months and bottled without fining or filtration (to maximize flavor), this is a dinner party-worthy Pinot Noir that will be delicious upon release – and over the next five to 10 years.
“Simply put, I can’t recommend these wines highly enough,” says Antonio Galloni. Neither can we. Order today.
