FOXEN 2011 SYRAH "TOASTED ROPE" SANTA YNEZ VALLEY 750mL

STEPHEN TANZER 92 POINTS - " (made entirely from fruit grown in the Vogelzang vineyard and includes 15% co-fermented viognier; all Hungarian oak puncheons, 30% of them new): Deep red. High-pitched red berry and rose scents are given depth by suggestions of woodsmoke and licorice. Sappy, penetrating red fruit flavors are full of verve and sharpened by a palate-numbing black pepper quality. There's a litheness here that reminds me of pinot noir. Closes tangy and long, with impressive clarity, silky tannins and lingering smokiness. This intriguing wine, modeled on Cote-Rotie (mission accomplished), was bottled unfined and unfiltered."

WINE ENTHUSIAST 92 POINTS 92 points Wine Enthusiast Vigorous in body, this Syrah comes from one of Foxens warmest vineyards, the well-known Vogelzang. Its riper and higher in alcohol than their Tinaquaic Syrah, making it richer, rounder and tastier. With blackberry, orange peel, red licorice and cola flavors, its balanced with fine tannins and acidity. Drink now2017. (12/ 2013)
