Foxen 7200 ‘Little Bird’ 2010

HAPPY CANYON OF SANTA BARBARA | CALIFORNIA | $42
A blueberry and boysenberry crush, with notes of cocoa, graphite, tarragon and orange zest. Medium to full bodied, well integrated and, to a small degree, gamey, with a satiny, slightly laden mouth feel and a lingering, satisfying finish. Rather agile, and surprisingly so, as the initial encounter conveys a weightiness that portends clumsiness — and yet this image rapidly vanishes revealing a complex, sublime soul. Merlin Olsen. 60% Merlot, 40% Petit Verdot. A very good wine. (Reviewed 2/2/13)
