Foxen ‘Volpino’ 2006

SANTA YNEZ VALLEY | CALIFORNIA

An interesting Cali “Super Tuscan” blend of 72% Sangiovese and 28% Merlot. Easily accessible but complex. Dark berry fruit with soft wood and pleasant organic-soil mid notes. A very exciting yet restrained wine — contradiction intended and much of the fun in this blend. Reasonably priced; a very good wine. (Reviewed 9/4/10)
