What We're Drinking Now: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir


 Foxen Pinot Noir, 2010, Santa Maria Valley, California  


A gloriously plush Pinot Noir that defines the term "finesse." This is a nose that smells expensive, folks, with aromas of candied cherry, sandalwood, and exotic spices, followed by a silken palate of cherry and wild berry with graceful acidity and length. Gorgeous.




Savory or Sweet?
