Foxen Syrah Tinaquaic Vineyard 2006

SANTA MARIA VALLEY | CALIFORNIA | $46
Mature black cherry, plum and dark berries with notes of bay and sumac, and a hit of citrus pith on the finish. Medium bodied — much lighter than one would expect from a 15.7% alcohol wine — and nicely integrated with a good balance of fruit and savory flavors. Velvet smooth texture with a slight grain. This chap draws you in, easygoing and ready with polite praise, and the auspicious encounter portends a great friendship. A very good wine. (Reviewed 1/27/13)
