Foxen Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley 2008

Foxen Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley 750ML 2008    
Sku: 13544

Winemaker's Notes
This wine is very fruit forward in style, full of “Pinot candy” and spice (Cola nut, cinnamon, cardamom) displaying notes of strawberry, cherry and sassafras. Supple and velvety in the mouth, this is an elegant wine. Typical of our Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir, this wine displays up front fruit— yet serious and complex at the same time.
- Bill Wathen, Winemaker

Tasting Notes
"Bright fruit flavors of cranberry relish, cinnamon, clove, cherry cola and cherry Garcia. An abundance of raspberry and boysenberry round out the finish. 2,300 cases produced."
