11-Toasted-Rope92 Points Foxen 2011 Toasted Rope Syrah Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara
Vigorous in body, this Syrah comes from on of Foxen’s warmest vineyards, the well known Vogelzang. It’s riper and higher in alcohol than their Tinaquaic Syrah, making it richer, rounder and tastier. With blackberry, orange peel, red licorice, and cola flavors. It’s balanced with fine tannins and acidity. Drink now.

11-WD-Syrah91 Points Foxen 2011 Syrah Williamson-Doré Vineyard Santa Ynez Valley
What a pretty Syrah this is. With moderate alcohol and subtle oak influences, it’s dry and stylishly elegant in the mouth. The flavors veer toward ripe cherries and blackberries, sprinkled with cinnamon, cocoa and finely-ground black pepper. Drink now-2015.

11-Cuvee-JM89 Points Foxen 2011 Cuveé Jeanne Marie Williamson Doré Vineyard Santa Ynez Valley
With 15% alcohol by volume, this is the headiest of Foxen’s new 2011 reds. A blend of Grenache and Mourvédre, it’s fruity and almost to the point of sweetness in raspberries and cherries, but turns dry and crisp on the finish. A delightful red wine to drink now with almost anything, and you can even put a little chill on it.
