Foxen 2012 Pinot Noir, John Sebastiano VIneyard, STA. Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County, CA
Vinous.com rating: 92..."Vivid ruby. Spicy dark berries, cherry-cola and incense on the deeply perfumed nose, with vibrant mineral and floral notes adding energy. At once densely packed and vibrant in the mouth, offering intense blackberry and boysenberry flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Finishes brisk and spicy, with the dark berry note repeating. In an extroverted, fruit-driven style, with the concentration and balance to reward patience."
