Foxen Pinot Noir Sea Smoke Vineyard 2005

SANTA RITA HILLS | CALIFORNIA | $75

Robust, earthy grilled plum with bright rhubarb and juicy red cherry and blueberry. Infused with exotic spices of orange peel, cardamom and bay with notes of licorice, camphor, graphite and cocoa. Gracefully integrated and seductively perfumed, thoughtfully complex and superbly balanced, this siren has it all — beauty and brains…and well-masked, but punishing 15.2% alcohol. An excellent wine.
