Foxen Merlot Voglezang Vineyard 2006

HAPPY CANYON | SANTA YNEZ VALLEY | CALIFORNIA | $32

Soft elderberry and red plum fruit filled out and mellowed by wood and spice notes. Bare hints of nutmeg and bay on top, earthy fruit dominates and soft tannins provide weight and balance. Complex, integrated and well-proportioned. Clearly a top Central Coast Merlot — without peer — one that keeps pace with the best from Napa. An unassuming fellow of great warmth, charm and intelligence who delivers more than expected. An excellent wine. (Reviewed 10/23/10)
